I think this cladding is much better from up close. It is intricate. This nice detail is lost when you look at it from afar. I agree with you chjbolton.

I was just in Chicago recently and went on one of the river boat tours and the guy doing the commentary said the planners of this building intend to build it bigger than the trump tower. I haven't seen any info to back that up, has anyone else heard that?

No, that's not true. Either you misheard (perhaps he was talking about the Chicago Spire) or he doesn't know what he's talking about.

2 more tenants lined up for 300 N. LaSalle
By Thomas A. Corfman, July 09, 2008


With two deals totaling about 85,000 square feet, developer Hines Interests L.P. is close to making 300 N. LaSalle St. more than 90% leased eight months before the scheduled completion of the riverfront skyscraper.

In the larger of the two transactions, London-based insurance giant Aviva PLC plans to open a new North American headquarters in the 60-story, 1.35-million-square-foot tower, sources familiar with the transaction say. Aviva is close to signing a lease for about 50,000 square feet, those sources say, moving from a temporary office at 77 W. Wacker Drive.

Meanwhile, AlixPartners LLP has signed a lease for nearly 34,000 square feet, moving its Chicago office from 181 W. Madison St., according to real estate firm CB Richard Ellis Inc., which represented the New York-based turnaround consultant.

I don't he must have just made a mistake, maybe he had this building confused with some other project.

The irony of working in a cloth covered cube in a glass skyscraper. And to top it off the entire E wall will be offices ( on these floors ).

July 16

Topping Out

July 17 - 1pm

They are supposed to lift this 10 minutes ago, if somebody with a better lense, and a view of the south side could catch that ......

Clever and subtitle lighting at night could be savior I say.
