Thanks Chicago Skyline. Those pictures kick ass.

I just noticed for the first time a couple of weeks ago that you can see 340 on inbound I-90

That area could be real different with completed 340 OTP, vertically expanded BCBSIL building, along with Mandarin Oriental and Aqua at farther backdrop. Imagine how stunning the scene would look!

340 on the park

ive looked closely at the recent photos of this building and noticed how much taller it is than the the prudential bldg.the prudential is 601' to the very top of the roof just look closely at the photo of those two in the picture get a straight edge go from the top one to the other and youll see that 340 looks to be at least 100' taller already.

Yea, indeed!

Alright, since no one has update OTP340 for awhile, here is one for the hack of it! I drove by Chicago DT today and snap it with my phone, hope this is ok!
Looks like it is topped out or is there more floors to go? and ready for completing the rest of facades on the top floors!

Well, looked back thru the render provided by spyguy and compare, I think that OTP 340 is very near topping out! When is the expected completion of OTP 340?

I'm pretty sure she's about done. I'm not about to sit here and count floors, but, I would guess that the core has just about TO'd at this point.

Also, to whomever referred to this area as River North earlier - this is actually Lakeshore East (or the "New East Side" or "East Loop"). River North is north of the River and west of Michigan Avenue.

I'm really liking the horizontal lines on this building. They are very distinctive, even at a distance.
