I could be talking out my ass but i could have sworn i read an article that said their interested in starting tower 2 by late 2019. I also believe they were talking about something taking over the most expensive gas station in the country the BP down the street. It could be all speculative bullshit but if i remember where i read it i'll try to post it and see if you guys can verify.

There's no time frame as the second tower has yet to be designed. That'll probably come back before the neighborhood with presentations and such. The second tower is still a few years off, and it may not even be a twin.

Has anyone seen prints/drawings for the plan of this? I searched around but couldn't find anything. I'm curious about the length of that east wall--it looks gigantic.

Let's just hope whatever is built will retain the current proposal height (or go taller) and not take too long too happen.

That would be interesting if it had a different design that its older brother to the east. Would the two towers still have a shared base with a similar design? It would seem awkward to have OGP not share a base with 2GP, the way its currently oriented. Or maybe not... as long as they met at the same height...

^The first setback along Indiana isn't until about the 26th floor.

Keep on chugging little man. At the fast rate their building this thing you would think its already sold out and their making plans to start number2. Speaking of which, thats going to be some slim quarters to work with for staging and equipment storage.

This building is 100% rental apartments.

Crescent Heights also owns the land to the southeast of this lot and can use that for staging.

Did they forget to order the glass? Starting to look like Wolf Point West... structure goes up real quick using tables, but no glass following the structure.

This thing is going to be huge. It's going to destroy the South Loop rental market when it delivers, especially since that would be pretty much simultaneous with the one on Michigan.
