Nope... It's in its final vertical thrust.

I think the top of the building will be relatively close to the very top of the crane in this image.

2/5 from North and Elston. For what it's worth great views of St Regis and One Chicago on that drive as well.

Great pics Harry, as always! I'm really digging the glasswork on this one, even if it is blue

I hope BMO spurs more office towers in the vicinity of Union Station. Considering how much of a selling point proximity to the big Metra stations in the West Loop is, it always amazed me that much of the area around Ogilve and Union was pretty low slung.

The skyline must march westward!

Great pics harry! I love how the crane in the third photo almost looks like it's tipping it's hat to Sears as a gesture of skyscraper homage......

The change of material on the column covers at the setback floors was an unexpected detail. Apparently they are a silver aluminum typically, but will be stainless steel at each of the 3 setback floors and on the Vs at the building base.

Great details on this one. I wish it was another 200ft taller with an additional setback.

The skyline must march westward!
The tenants paying the top rents want to be near a cool amenity - the river or Fulton Market dining district.

I also think (maybe wrongly, IDK) that more of the top executives and decision-makers are living in the city than ever before, so locating their offices near Metra holds less importance to them - even if many workers overall continue to commute from the suburbs. Surprisingly this may lead to more executives driving to work than before... if you're an executive living in the city, you might take CTA but you might decide to drive. Yes, there's congestion, but it's still only 20-30 minutes from Lincoln Park to West Loop at rush hour. Suburb-based commuters face 60-90 minute drives from their suburban residences - that's a much stronger incentive to take transit.

Also, the rise of Uber/Lyft, Divvy, etc have kind of shattered the traditional walkshed boundaries of downtown and allowed businesses to move farther afield without the city needing to invest in costly new rail lines.
