Here's a rendering of The Columbian I was able to obtain. I don't think that you should replace the other rendering, but put the 2 side-by-side. This easeter elevation alows you to get a better idea of the roof profile.

Do we know what the official height of the Columbian will be? I recall 48 stories?

From the webcam and photos on emporis, it looks like there is something else under construction next to the Columbian... west of it. Anyone know what that is?

There is a two story building that is being rehabed for commercial space at Wabash and Roosevelt.

This is from last weekend

I just passed by it today and was surprised by how quickly it has been going up. It seems like it started late and has caught up in a hurry and maybe even gotten ahead.

Doesnt seem a little early in the construction phase to be putting the precast fascade on the building? I watched them bringing it in on Sunday and cant believe it will make it with out being damaged.

Nice photos. I don't get why they decided to put the facade on now...
