and you can literally walk a few blocks to a place that has car rentals (e.g. Madison and Wells Enterprise).

But it’s amazing how many out of towners visit Chicago and still think they need a rental car. Obviously for some people it’s justified, but for many it seems to be ignorance.

My cousin’s family from Atlanta came to Chicago to vacation and see the sites and attractions a few years ago and they rented a car for literally no reason.

They probably just assumed that Chicago was similar to Atlanta, where you literally have to drive everywhere

Frankly, I really love the park, I think it's a great asset for that part of the west loop, and I feel that it will get a lot of use in the warmer months.

Hopefully the Old Post Office moves forward soon with the river development on its east side. Once completed, this park plus that could potentially make Van Buren very active and an interesting area.

If you're flying to O'Hare or Midway and visiting family in the suburbs, a rental car makes sense. The transit system isn't set up for suburb-to-suburb trips.

If you're arriving at Union Station on a train, you have easy access on CTA or Metra trains to every corner of the region.

What a presence this building has in the area southwest of the Loop. Hopefully this, and the OPO, collectively spur development in this direction and helps expand the skyline south and west!

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to see MORE steel extending about 20’ atop the core. Unexpected height. Photo to follow!

...And to the West, when seen from the north side. Great impact all around, and edging out 800 W Fulton for my #2 ranked spot of the new office towers this boom.

1. River Point
2. BMO Tower
3. 800 W Fulton
4. 150 N Wacker
5. 167 N Green (Hell of a penthouse)
6. 110 (it has great angles, but also very boring angles (from the south)
TBD: Salesforce

A little late, but here's a shot from a couple weeks ago. Scaled the building for some view shots & took some from park level, too. Hope to have more to share soon:
