Our firm receives periodic updates on the building progress, since we're the anchor tenant. I have no idea where that shot was taken, but our internal communications calls it a "mock-up", so I'm guessing that's exactly what we'll be seeing in a couple months.

In all likelihood, that mockup is at the glazing manufacturer's facility. Undergoing testing for leaks, visibility, quality control, etc.

It's certainly not at the jobsite; you can see a tree behind the scaffolding, and I don't think there's a tree within a 1/2 mile of 300 N. LaSalle.

I also scrutinized the site, and I didn't see any glass.

Cannot imagine how large that Merchantile Exchange really is...even about 6 multiple of The 300 NL footprints all together!!

Is it just me or hasn't the core risen much in recent weeks?

Kirkland & Ellis is the anchor. We're moving there in the first quarter of '09.

It'll be cool to see a steel highrise go up quickly in comparison to all the concrete construction in the city.
