They are still in use by Metra. And I think ChicagoShawn said that its in the master plans to cover up the tracks. The South Loop is really starting to mature and it'll be amazing when these buildings (low, mid, and high-rises) are finished. This area has potential for greatness oozing out of it pores.

Now, I only wish attention could be focused on Chicago Ave. Im obsessed with Chicago Ave for some reason.

Hum, still in service by Metra!
Yep, I think that they should cover up the tracks for good, since it makes tons of noise when trains roll by and I don't think that the residents of OMP like that!

Actually, with it being electric powered (I believe), there shouldnt be too much noise at all. And the only time there should be any real disturbances should be during rush-hour and even then nothing significant. Before and after that, I doubt that they [residents] would notice it during their daily lives and if so then, I would think it'd be minor. I would expect more noise from LSD and Roosevelt Rd. Just my guess though...

And as far as the covering up the tracks, I'd think it would be more to do with aesthetics than noise from the trains.

Okay, that's the first angle I've seen of OMP that doesn't make me think this tower will be a huge blemish on the skyline. It actually looks somewhat slender in that shot!

This is honestly going to change people's perception of the Chicago skyline. They are going to realize that it doesn't stop at the Sear Tower. lol.

Wow, this development looks 1,000 times better than the initial plans I saw a while back. Looks great. Very creative design, especially up on the crown.

Question: How will this development affect the views of the Chicago Skyline as seen from Soldier Field?

It'll be interesting to see what the tip actually looks like when its all completed. I hope that these towers have special lighting as well.

I would be cool if someone could throw together what the southern skyline ie. south of millenium park running along Mich to and through central station will look like if all or most of the proposed projects reach completion

From Tom In Chicago

You can really see how well the Central Station highrises are bookending the southern border of Grant Park (I love Sky55). Once One Museum Park (and, god willing, OMP West) is done, it's gonna be on, fools.

I'm pretty sure OMP West will be on. Bovis has be ordering a lot of sets of drawings for that building over the last month or so.
