I think once 601W starts developing some of the land they have been scooping up around the Old Post Office it should thicken the skyline from the SW. Cant wait until that starts happening, it looks very deserted now with all of the low rise warehouse type buildings.

thanks for the update!

good to hear that things are rolling along as scheduled.

and from everything we've been told thus far, salesforce is slated to start in Q1 2020, so we could see two major office tower starts within several months of each other.

Does Q4 of '19 mean the start of construction actual, or start of demo of the parking garage? Have they announced when the garage closes?

I'd expect demo by August/September as I see it, since Clark wouldn't be the demo team. If they are saying Q4 for construction then I'm gonna be an optimist here.

There's a delicious Indian/Pakistani restaurant in this garage that has announced a move to Randolph street, so that bums me out. But at least we get a nice tower out of it, so it's not all bad.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that frequents Baba's Village. Where on Randolph are they moving? I really like their Chicken Biryani, but I digress ...

I believe 100 W Randolph was the new address. They have the announcement taped up on their wall.

I wonder if they'll have more customers farther north in the Loop than they would if they could capture some of the huge influx of employees due to move into the Old Post Office right next door ...

So Thompson Center? And if that gets torn down, they'll move again?

I think there's more residents near Thompson Center than Union Station, but I could be wrong. I hope it stays open somewhat late still on Friday's. I enjoy doing the occasional Friday afternoon/evening happy hour and then running over there for some take out.

It's probably been said before, but this building is going to stand out a lot in this area. I work within 2 blocks of the site, and everything surrounding it is 15-30 stories tall. In the greater context of Chicago it might not make for a big splash, but in this southwest Loop area, it'll stick out big time.

From that angle, I imagine it will be about the height of 330 LaSalle or 150 N and a very similar spot. Not super noticeable from there IMO.

^ The setback on Willis that is around the roof top height of the Franklin center is about ~850 ft and 111 s Wacker is ~680 so from this angle it will be between those two marks. (probably right in the middle)

There also isn't much visual noise from this angle, just a flat backdrop from Willis and some stone clad towers - the tower will be quite noticeable.

I don't know... I feel that it'll appear to be the same roof height, if not taller than the Franklin center from there due to being well in the foreground.

Edit: maybe not upon further inspection via google maps, I guess it'll be more West than South than my mental map had imagined, so proximity to the highway won't be as dramatic a difference as I thought
