I agree where is the preservationists when we really need them.

Losing this parking wonder is a damn shame.

yea me too. I stood on the roof of that trying to get a view of the sox world series parade in 05. the 3 story concrete structure soared over the people standing on the street. the way the parking lines where drawn on the ground, truly a masterpiece. the rusting parking sign, the crumbling walls, the exposed rebar. I'm still very devastated to see it go. I really cant believe people would rather see a 60 story glass and steel structure.

I wrote several letter to the city trying to give this landmark status to no avail. Chicago you really blew it this time.

It looks to me to be taken from about 2/3rds of the way up in the RR Donnelly building, the same place where his 'looking down' shots of the Waterview are taken from.

Other side of the river, next to Donnelley.

The Waterview is to the west directly across Clark St from the Donnelly building. 300 N LaSalle is across the river and one block to the west of the Waterview.

Yes, there is a LOT of tall building work going on all along the east-west part of the river - it really is turning into one of the World's premiere urban 'canyons'.

Will this one make a impact on the skyline? And can someone make a new rendering, or is there one, of our skyline.

yes, I think it will. you will be able to see it clearly from the west I believe. it will also greatly add to the river canyon effect. this will be a big one.

Cool beans. Man, when all of these river buildings get done it will be really impressive! The boat tours will be even more amazing....can't wait.
