I’m not one that is disappointed in this tower - at all. I think it’s going to end up as a great piece of design, a very solid addition at its current planned height. However, for the more height-obsessed, if you’re looking for a reason to have a little hope that a small number of additional floors may be added:

1) It hasn’t been uncommon for new office towers in Chicago recently to add a few floors late in planning stages - or even after construction has commenced.

2) I think Salesforce’s lease accounts for somewhere in the roughly 45% range of the tower’s current planned total leaseable space. Recently, several new towers have had their anchor tenant account for something a bit lower - more on the order of 30-35% of total space

So, ya never know.

What was updated? Is this a height bump? I've seen mostly 813 ft reported in the media

I believe one measures height above riverwalk (835) vs height above street (813) if I'm not mistaken.

A little bird told me to watch for this one to break ground in late January/February. They are slowly starting to shut down/move the staging area currently in use for WPE.

^ cool. Q1, 2019 was what we were told a while ago, good to hear that things seem to be on track.

and with BMO due to start up later this fall, that'll be two more major office buildings to tack on to this boom.

it ain't over yet folks!

nothing is ever "locked in" until construction starts (and even then....),

but i don't think there's much reason to expect that they'll be redesigning the wheel at this point in the game.

maybe a few floors get added/chopped, but probably not anything too terribly significant.

While on the height question, Salesforce on their blog announced that the top floor is going to be an 'Ohana' floor, in their words "During the day, our Ohana Floors are open for employee events and then on weeknights and weekends, these one-of-a-kind spaces with jaw-dropping views are made available for non-profits and foundations at no cost --- aligning with our values of giving back. "

https://www.salesforce.com/blog/2018...r-chicago.html
https://www.salesforce.com/company/ohana-floors/

My question with occupied height of 763' via http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/buil...th-tower/14276, and River Point architectural at 732' http://www.skyscrapercenter.com/buil...ver-point/1381 and 150 N Riverside architectural at 752' http://150northriverside.com/#stackingplan, to what extent will this Ohana floor be able to see over them? Seems like the southwest view is going to be somewhat obstructed, not that there's really much to see in that direction.

Is it too much to ask for it to top out at 800+ feet? Or maybe a spire?

I agree , I honestly don’t belief 835ft is the official height it seem like from that article they a lil torn on the height.

When you have a 500,000 SF lease with a Grade A tenant falling behind schedule is not an option. The damages of failing to deliver would be catastrophic for the developers.

We've seen 813' a lot, which may just be the 835' w/o measuring the riverwalk. That would scale up with the recent renderings.

the current height info we have for this tower came from Tom who saw some dimensioned elevation diagrams back in march.

---835' 3" height to top of parapet as measured from Level B2 (restaurant/riverwalk)
---813' height to top of parapet as measured from Level 1 (main entrance)

. . .

those numbers are of course subject to some change as the design gets finalized and tweaks are made.
