Ready for re-use after about 100yrs


Old footings - I think these are what were in the concrete piers along the river (now mostly removed)

Great shots harry. That last one reminds me of the pictures from the early 1900's were the rivers edge looked like swamp land.

Kinda wish they left the old dock foundations. They remind me of old dragons teeth tank traps! But i guess you don't need tank traps next to a river in chicago .......

^Those were indeed pretty cool. Definitely gave a WWII era feel.

Photo from today. It will be great to see the rest of the towers fill this area in.

^ Off topic, but I remember there being a plan for a small office building on the lot just north of the chiller building. What ever became of that?

I think it was two highrises. There and that lot just south of 311. Or was that two twins south and north of 311, like 40 floors each?
