Floorplates already! Going good.

Thanks for the updates. Hopefully the facade treatment will be just as good as the renders.

Wow, the poor little Helene Curtis building already looks tiny...and this is only the beginning of the core of the tower.

Hope it survives, always liked that building.

I had to look it up so I thought I would save other interested fourmers the same by posting a pic of the Helene Curtis building.













To the left of the Helene Curtis building one can see a corner of the Merchandise Mart with the green roof. That one will be around for a long time hopefully, once the largest building in the USA pre Pentagon area in SQ feet I belive.







Better complete view of the Merch Mart and its relation and location to 300 N. LaSalle.

...

Largest office building in Chicago, and one of the largest in the world.

The building is so large that it has its own zip code: 60654.
