BOOM! you got it. I use to walk by this place a lot when I traded at the Merc and I could never understand why such an ugly piece of s... like that could occupy such a great location on the river. Someone will come along and build on top of it eventually.

Well, remember what used to be at the Trump Tower site... maybe someday something grander will replace this one.

I work in that little brick loft building across the street. It's a really cool space.

I noticed the other day that this building is up to the 22nd or 23rd floor. It's over half way.

Well, halfway would be 24 floors, but the lobby is double-height, so perhaps it's at 24.5? Whatever, it's certainly close to halfway-done.

The stee and core teams are really flying - there was a time when we were wondering if 155 North Wacker would surpass 300 North LaSalle. Obviously, that hasn't happened, but I'm pretty sure it WILL surpass 353 North Clark.

I'm waiting for glass installation to start any day now.

You are correct, current erecting L26 & L27, and the core is currently at the 30th floor. Windows are stocked throught the 11th floor, and should start late the week of the 7th.

We will beat 353 N Clark, that is what we are track to do!!!!

July 9th, I posted that they are at the 31st floor for the core and 27th floor for the floors. Yesterday, two weeks after that posting I noticed that they are at 36 on the core and 31 on the flooring.

A few weeks ago I was looking down into the top from our lunchroom on the 26th floor. Within days the buiding was even with us, and is now pusing up beyond my view point from inside.

I can't believe how fast this thing is going up. My boss went on maternity leave this spring, and she said when she walked around the corner from the train last month on her first day back her eyes almost fell out of her head. It went from a hole in the ground to 30 floors in just a matter of 3 months.
