^ That's quite an impressive set there Wrabbit - The facade offers so many patterns that are always changing with the sun's angle. The white Terracotta building (Thompson bldg) with the light reflections on it (across Clark st) is currently Meserow's main bldg, they have expanded and are now on many floors of the glass box next door (ABA - aka Quaker), they plan on locating all operations in their new building - I wonder if they'll do away w moving trucks altogether.





Entrance from Lower Carol


This will add to the interesting mix of smells on Lower Carol.




Plaza Progresses.

I suspect the bags on the roof of the lower W section are dirt ( upper Left in my photo ).

Yet another stunning trophy for Chicago.

How refreshing to see elegant, refined highrises in a world where gaudy and cheesy skyscrapers are popping up all over the place.

This building is true to Chicago-style commercial/office architecture: the shape is a lame box, but it has nice glass.
