From the looks of it, that structure was made in the mid-late 70s. Clad in black so typical of Chicago in that era. Looks a lot better than the IBM or the Illinois Center if you ask me.

Which is why I described the "structure" as being in "its" late 20s/early 30s (mid to late 70s construction) and clad in black.

I like how the glass is only a couple floors behind the highest floors. perhaps they are able to keep us since concrete is a notoriously slower build

They're putting up glass in a hurry to get the hotel open while the rest remains under construction. In another week, the transition for the floor setback will be complete, and the condo portion will start to rise. The hotel is scheduled to open in December.

Doesn't it look like the forms for a floor are being set in that second image?
