The Riverbend Three, from the 94th floor of The John Hancock Center.
Check the John Hancock Center off the list.
It took me far too long to return to 360 Chicago. Actually, this was my first visit since the renaming. And they’ve done a lot of work to the observation area on the 94th floor. The TILT thing (no, I did not), new benches and seating areas, a nice food counter.
But the views haven’t changed. I mean, they have, in as much as Chicago itself is constantly changing. It’s a great vantage point for all things northward in Chicago. Not so much for the South Loop. But that’s what the Sears Tower is for. Some day soon, the Aon Center will help out in that regard as well.
150 North Riverside. But I think you know that by now.
River Point dwarfs Wold Point West.
360 Chicago is tower crane heaven. This golden beauty reigns above NEXT Apartments.
This tower crane is building Niche 905, just north of NEXT.
Remember the Howard Johnson motel on LaSalle? It’s gone, being replaced by 165 West Superior.
Another tower crane, this one at 833 North Clark.
Waaay over there across town they’re working on The Hudson, at 750 North Hudson Avenue.
This crane is in Streeterville, above a tower called Moment.
Today, in “Jobs I’ll Never Want” workers erect a tower crane at The Sinclair, on Clark and Division where the Jewel used to be. And will be again.
That huge hole in the ground will be No. 9 Walton.
This is 4 East Elm, which is almost completed.
The Chicago construction boom extends to Navy Pier, where they’re erecting a new Ferris wheel.
Even the United Center is in on the festivities, adding a 6-story office building next to the arena.
No construction here. Just the great view up Lake Michigan.
