I don’t mean to stir up controversy here, but as I walked to the train Monday morning, I couldn’t help but notice something very different about River Point.
It wasn’t the glass; they’ve been adding that for months, so it’s not surprising to see it rising higher every week.
It wasn’t the arch facing the river; I’ve pointed that out before. Because it’s fascinating.
No, River Point is different because of what isn’t there. Much like Cheers after Frasier moved to Seattle, River Point has no Crane. That’s normal for a building that’s topped out, which River Point did way back in December. But look at the photo above and tell me that tower crane atop 150 North Riverside doesn’t look a wee bit guilty.
I’d check the Chicago River for a freshly-severed crane.
