^ Well yes, but if you're going to knock off something, LPT would be a good choice.

It sure is coming along quickly. I can't wait to see it poking above Randolph.

340 on the Park

All,

I think 340 OTP will be one of the best residential buildings to hit the Chicago market in a long time. The architecture and location of the building will be hard to compete with. Those people with south facing units will have spectacular views. Anxious to see how it sprouts up over Upper Randolph - they are moving quick, so it won't be too long!

340 OTP is top notch, definately. When I take my trips into the city this summer I am looking forward to checking out some of the new sites, 340 OTP included. I am jealous of all these wonderful sites and developments you Chicago "city" forumers get to look at everyday. I havent been in since the January 2nd Bear/Packer Game. Cant wait to see Central Station too- a few months gone by....

Oh, and welcome to the forum Mahalo26

Rockford - we look forward to having you again. You won't be disappointed, I assure you - especially when you stop by Central Station, it's grown by leaps and bounds since the end of last year (even if that seemed impossible).

I think that they are starting to erect the tower crane today. I will stop by there after work and check back here later on tonight.

I need to retract my previous statement. I think that I jumped the gunn. When I went to linch today, I looked again, and it seemed as if that crane was delivering something the the top portion of the lowrise section of the Shoreham. I didn't get a chance to look after work, so I'll have to do it tomorrow.

I can see the crane from my office window. The cab is installed and I noticed the ground-crane stretching high into the sky but it went back down without lifting anything. Well, at least not anything for the tower crane.
