Oddly both MapQuest and yahoomaps get 111 N Clark wrong.

When you enter 111 W Wacker though ......

.43 mi

Those straps are for FEWORKERs' fall protection while they're setting the skin.

Anybody know what they're doing to the exterior of 77 W. Wacker? I worked on that when it went up. There are some pretty cool (IMO) continuous strip lights up and down the gables that took a lot of coordintion but they never turn them on which always bugged me.
