My office faces your building. I'd thought we get good views of the construction from 155, but I guess from 191 you'll get better views of everything except 130 N. Franklin.

On 151 N. Franklin, I don't think it adds much to the skyline, but if the video is anything to go by it will add a lot at the street level -- I really like the plaza area and the open glassiness of the building. With 130 N. Franklin and the small park at 155 N. Wacker, it should create a nice public space at the intersection of Randolph and Franklin.

The site is crawling with workers this morning, scaffolding/pedestrian passageway going up around the old Walgreens.

SEE YA! You suburban piece of shit!

^ Yeah!! Let's get this party started! There comes a time when you just have to put up, or shut up, and for Buck that time is nigh......time to build........(well, may be jumping ahead by a month or two here, but I digress).......

From what I was told the Tenant is debating between this and 130 N Franklin.

Nice tip! Have an idea/can divulge approximate # sq ft this unnamed tenant is planning to take?? Frankly, at this point I hope they go for 130, as that will likely cement its launch in a year or so, while I consider 151 to be essentially a done deal at this stage.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a couple additional significant tenants that are right now looking at and very interested in both 130 and 151......

I have to admit that I'm a little surprised it's taken this long to get our 3rd large office tower of the cycle officially launched, but 3 and 4 are certainly coming. And - I'm sticking to my earlier prediction of a total of 5 or 6 large office towers in total for the overall cycle.......it's a longer cycle......

Removes a blighted building, covers up an ugly side garage, brings a presence to 2 streetscapes, fills a corner lot in north loop with thousands of hungry workers, all modes of transit in walking distance. Even with squared windows the building is a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

There was very little activity all October, but it's definitely picked up this week. There were at least half a dozen people visible and working on the site yesterday.

Commercial Real Estate Data provider CoStar recently logged a change in building construction start from October (obviously that didn't turn out to be right) to January......my bet is that Buck changed this themselves, and this does correspond to what the Buck exec told Crain's back in (I think) Aug or Sept.....that construction would still begin late this year, or beginning of 2016.......

Great find, munchy. I like both of these more now with these new renderings.

Bye Walgreens. I took the Brown line to Merch Mart and not the Red Line today, I hadn't even noticed.

It's ridiculous how much larger the parking area is than the actual building. And to think these are all over the city at nearly every corner (be it a Walgreen's, bank, 7-11, et al.). The amount of population and business density lost in aggregate is certainly not insubstantial.
