Fencing in foreground is for the Obama rally.


Everyone should walk through the SantaFe building at least once in their life.

Funny thing...

I read somme people say that if a building like Greenland Plaza - NANJING - (450m) where built in Chicago (or other big city), the interest would be much, much higher, with many more replies.

Still... here we have a 250m tower in Chicago, that provide somme medium interest, tough a 250m building in Paris or London would have tons of replies.

P.S.
Great building. The location is

Do we have a couple of wide/pano renders for this one? I'm interested to see it's impact on the skyline.

The entrance in the building -lobby- it should be one of those old buildings...
Which one?

Taken Dec 12th from the Ridgeland stop in Oak Park ( Lake & Ridgeland ). The crane higlighted seems to be too close to Aon, but I can't think of anything bu Legacy that it would be on ( 155 Wacker's has come down )

Harry - I think the crane you mention is the BCBS expansion, not Legacy - If you look close, you can see the boom of the other crane and the 1 Pru Plaza spire right in front - besides it is too far N to be Legacy - since top of CT&T building is right in front of crane.
