I'm sure it's been asked before, but have people started to move in? It looks like not many from the pics.

street level(s) have been done for almost a year.
There are the hotel entrances (on Uppper Wabash)


And the lower level docks (on Lower Kinzie/Wabash)




the plaza rises up to a pedestrian area that has been open the entire time (deck over Lower Kinzie).

^353 North Clark. That must be an old picture because 353 N. Clark was recently completed.

Three pictures from my trip to Chicago last summer.
Great surface, it's luminescent in the sunset light.
