Thanks for the shots, Hazardously wasted and Krzycho! In 5 months, 340OTP will be taller than BCBSIL headquarter.

*My friend who works in BCBSIL told me that it does not abandon the goal of vertical expansion, despite moving some employees to 115 E Wacker building. It is ongoing process.

Thank you for the compliment TUP. But I have to learn few more things about taking the pictures with digicam, I only had it for about a year or so. (Nikon Colpix 5200) and I was never really a photographer material

Krzycho, you did a fantastic job of capturing the shots of BCBSIL building. To answer your question, the original plan was to add 20 floors on top of existing building which could potentially be above 600ft. Not sure if anything has changed.

Yup, when I was talking to some architect from Architecture Foundation, she briefly mentioned about this expansion but lacked on any details, other then “sometime in the future”. And I thought it was another 30 floors not 20? Then again…. 20, 30… what’s the difference?

Nice shots! It's getting taller by the week. I can't wait till the facade gets higher and higher and then surpasses it's neighbors.
