The skyline is finally forming the 3rd wall around Grant park.

Nice photos. From the first one (and the night lighting), I guess I finally understand what P/H was talking about when transitioning the styles of the buildings, although I still hate the first towers in Central Station.

One Musuem Park, 01-02-2007...







For those of you concerened the north face on Grant Park will be too bulky, just look^. Seems pretty slender to me.






Check out the massive transfer beams, I now know why this building took so long to rise out of the base.


Notice behind the windscreen, cladding material has arrived.

lol, that is a strange coincidence. I took this one at about 8:45am this morning. How about you? Also, is that sculpture exhibit worth a visit?

Actually I took it at 4 this afternoon but the sun kinda looked the same, that's why I asked...but the Abakanowicz's sculptures are definitely one of my favorite art installments in Chicago. I have walked through them 3 times now and everytime it feels different. I thought they would be really creepy or bland but once you walk through them you get this incredible feeling just as the architecture makes us feel small in Chicago this is doing the same just with an artistic flair. Really great can't say enough about it and capturing some of the buildings on Michigan Ave between two sculptures is postcard worthy. I'd wait until the snow melts, snow removal is not a priority it seems.

i_am_hydrogen -- great shot of Central Station. I liked your shot most of all because it really gave me the overall sense of how that area is coming together. Living outside Chicago, I generally only get to see how new buildings look when photographed -- typically in relative isolation. I'm grateful for this opportunity to see how the Central Station towers interact. Any hope for some commercial /mixed use on Indiana, or is all of that reserved for Michigan?

Indiana is pretty much a designated all res boulevard until 16th. However, with these rumored 80-story and 1000"+ buildings on roosevelt between indiana and michigan that plan could certainly change. There's a lot of vacancies on michigan ave, and there will be many more when all those new buildings (marquee, 1720, mich ave II, 1400) get completed. Don't forget the old courthouse building, Allure, and what may be developed on the NW corner of 14th and mich- a vacant lot as of now.

From the model it does not show that
