A couple pics I snagged with my phone on the way to O'Hare this Saturday. Apologies for the potato quality

Making a big cistern under the park - this will allow the water to seep into the ground - not pour into the city's sewers. http://stormtrap.com/

I'm sorry to all the haters but Chicago makes really great glass boxes. There's a lot of quality stuff in this boom.

Demolition is underway for Shapack's office tower that's going to straddle the block of Green/Halsted south of Lake.

750,000 sq ft.

The glass on Renelle is looking good. I just hope those opaque panels end up aging well.

The glass looks a lot like what what put up on Catalyst. While only a couple years old, that still looks great. A Joffrey tower situation doesn't seem as likely.
