Thank you, Chicago Skyline. I love the pics. In the ariels, it is interesting to see which buildings stand out and which ones do not.

Thought this was most relevant to post here since the press release prominently featured 340. Martin Wolf's drawings will be on display at I space begining JAN 26 (230 W Superior) Pretty cool to see the likes of 340 in a very roughly sketched state.

I think I'm going to really enjoy the stepped effect when BCBS tops out.

Why have the top windows not been installed yet? It's been like that for at least two months now.

Thanks Geoff and DanDisco. I love it when the threads sport so many fine pics; it really makes my day.

They've slowly but surely been finishing the windows on the back side but still... 5 more floors left...

Also, I love the occasional boarded up window. I've always wondered about those, are they like short-term replacements for ones that workers accidentally broke or something?

Broken or didn't fit (for whatever reason).

Yeah, 340 is so goddamn sexy. One of (if not the) the hottest towers that's gone up here in decades.

That's how I fell about 95% of the townhomes in the Prairie distruct
area. The only good ones over there is the stretch on the east side
of Prairie betwnn 18th Street and Cullerton. The rest are shit.
