These views down from the R.R. Donnelley Building are awe-inspiring! But soon you've got to get to the very top there to peek down onto Waterview Tower, Retrograde, because it's growing quickly now.
And a few months later, even the top won't be enough, since WVT will easily outshine the 204 meters of R.R.Donnelley.

Btw. why is the core almost completely covered (with wooden shelves, I suppose)? No elevator shafts are visible. Is this prevention against the cold winter in the Windy City?

This form has trap doors to keep the space between the forms covered until the rebar starts to stick up ( 353 N Clark )
