Yeah - i can't wait to see what the area is going to look like when it's all done. The West Loop is pretty crazy. When I was back a few weeks ago it was just insane. My girlfriend remarked that it looks like China because of all the construction cranes LOL

Tell me about it I rode the green inbound had not been on this route for almost a year and wow it honestly the West loop Fulton market area, feels totally different like a whole new neighborhood, the added bulk, and construction is truly ashtonisng. Chicago is like on steroids with all the growth and bulk it's adding,.

It helps to have a Facebook, Google, McDonalds, Walgreens, or whatnot announcement of 500-2000 job moving downtown every other week. I would say I don't know where everyone is going to live, but we are also slapping up housing at a break neck pace. With all these new announcements I'm getting increasingly bullish that downtown construction will not outstrip demand in the foreseeable future.

For me I have been living in oak park, invested in a condo, over 7 years ago, and the timing couldn't be more perfect. With a family now we plan to buy house and rent the condo I saw and see the demand and influx that I should benifit from for years. It's exciting, I can feel the wave of construction working its way west.

That parking garage NE/across the street from 145 wells is begging to bite the dust as well.

^ Simple and neat design. The facade has a very light and airy appearance, which I feel complements the Bush Temple well, with its skyward dormers and steep roof line. Now if only they would rebuild the cupola as a part of this project as well.

It looks like it meets the street well. Only 13 parking spots too! Win, win.

Nice image. I didn't know the Bush Temple had a clock tower and all those accents on top.

Is there an expectation of a tower to the north? I can't imagine not wanting windows.

But the addition is rather nice, I must admit.
