CHICAGO | 600 North Fairbanks | 140m | 458ft | 41 fl | Com

Helmut Jahn's new Chicago condo tower, located in the Streeterville neighborhood, just across the river from the Loop.

Beautiful fit & finish, just first rate all 'round.

23 March:



Slightly metallic-looking garage shades



Nicely articulated corner





Crown



That most excellent North face





From the South

WOW! the slanted face looks incedible! The first photo is amazing! Why did it take so long to start a thread for this beauty? When did construction start on this Stunning tower?

This is funny, a 140 meter tower in Chicago and the thread about it, starts when the building is topped out! Maybe its not a big topic in Chicago, but when such a big building(by Dutch standards) is proposed in the Netherlands, people will post about it 10 times a day! Even when its not under construction yet.
I guess that's the difference between a country having hundreds of buildings bigger than 140 meter and a country with 1 building bigger than that.
Btw, nice building!

I think SSP considers this one complete.

Anyway, I'm guessing no one made a thread in the world development section because this is a fairly short building. If you want more construction pics you can always check out the thread in the Chicago section.

23 March:

Maybe a Lens Correction and taking the white parts out would raise the pic quality. Altought your pics are very nice.

@ Dallasbrink: Yes, its been done for a while, but its just now really starting to fill up. I was just there tonight and just saw a car use the garage entrance for the first time. The lobby is beautiful and fully staffed with a doorman and janitor (probably also the maintenance man for the units above).

Every night more and more lights turn on in this building, its really starting to show signs of life!

We'll this isn't considered an update because the buildings already completed... But, here's a few more pics anyways. The building looks great in person!
