I just got a new job at 191 N. Wacker on the 25th floor. Start a week from Monday.

I'll be able to look out our office and see this thing rise....nice. Although it'll block my view after awhile.

Really though, from just north of the USB until Lake Street, Franklin is a huge letdown on the west side of the street. It literally just has nothing big. I do like the views you can get though looking south from around Lake or Randolph since you have the 2.5 block view without anything in the way. Really though, the east side isn't anything special except for the one black and white building that's tall. Is that he old SBC building? I'm trying to remember from walking by it on the way home for 2 years.

Now that I'm google mapping it....the area between Lake and Randolph has pretty much nothing from Wells all the way to the river. 191 N. Wacker and the black tower on the river are it.....

Sorry about the glare from behind, but they are gutting the floor we are moving up to.

Marsh & McLennan narrows downtown office choices
By Thomas A. Corfman


Marsh & McLennan Cos. has narrowed its search for new downtown offices to three choices, including a new Wacker Drive skyscraper under construction by developer John Buck Co., where it might take as much as 350,000 square feet.

It's a nice, solid office tower. My only qualm is the fact that the lobby doesn't face Wacker. Why not treat Wacker like the premier avenue of commerce that it has become, instead of placing a blank wall (and perhaps a garage door?) in its path?

I didn't even know this building existed until I walked by the site today.
The core looks about 3 or 4 floors above ground level.
There are steel columns around the perimeter, reaching to street level.
The eastern half of the building has the two sub-level parking floors complete,
I saw them moving some massive steel beams to the west side, probably
getting ready to finish the parking levels.
