Um, no. The green marker due south is. Just south-east of where the El tracks split.

1. Would like to see the projected visual impact as seen from Lake Michigan.
2. How does a structure like this impact the overall health of an institution like Roosevelt?
3. How many universities and students exist in the Loop? Would very much like to see an estimated population. Just started dating a girl from "East-West University" on Michigan Ave, just South of Balboa Ave. Never heard of it until she brought me inside of what appeared to be an old, broken-down building. Inside, it was alive and full of innovation and educational energy. If you're judging a book by its cover, Chicago's a Playmate. If you're judging a book by its content, she's a Nobel Prize winner.

Chicago Loop Alliance estimated a student pop of 65,000+ in 2009 and that these "institutions that together occupy nearly 8 million total gross square feet
of Loop real estate".

There's a full report of High Ed impact on the Loop by the CLA here. [PDF Link]

Also of interest I came across this image on ENRMidwest:

Part of the caption reads "Shown is a historic facade that will be integrated into the $118-million tower"...haven't really heard of that before. Did some digging, and found this: "The fašade of the former Fine Arts Annex, created in 1924 by renowned architect Andrew Rebori, will be preserved and will become part of the University bookstore entrance at the north end of the new building. " Better shot of the facade here.

Lastly, here are some recent shots I found on Flickr. (A user on there named Laura_1976 has chronicled the progress of this site from Nov 2009 till now, and has updated every few weeks. Full set here)







Notice the supports in that last image that begin to form the undulating glass curtain.

I get more and more excited with this building as it rises!

This is the time of year when there's sun on the north side of the tower:

Can you get it in a bigger size? And who's the photographer?

This building reminds me a bit of the Chelsea Modern.

The cladding of this tower was completed last week. They've got a big white Roosevelt University sign facing south.
