You can see the 150 Riverside site as well as the work being done at Wolf Point. And maybe some friends of riverbend.

This is one of my favorite projects(probably some local favoritism going on though), and I'm glad to see it being built after thinking it was cancelled. The tower looks great with a beautiful contemporary design, with a beautiful riverside location.

Is this tower still considered to be in the Loop or is there a name for this area of Chicago?

No, it's just outside the Loop. It's in the northeast corner of the Near West Side community.

Indeed, glad that doesn't stay. It would completely ruin the base view from the river.
