^I'd agree with you, if my comment weren't tongue in cheek! My pal appreciated the photo but I had him assure me that we will not see it on any billboards.

as always, thanks for the pics.
If drilling begins before another tower finishes construction, then we will have 50 active skyscrapers under construction in the city.

Has that ever happened before?

Does your count include Wicker Park Connection? That wasn't on page 1.

Damn that is awesome. Was driving home down Eastbound Kennedy this afternoon, and just looking across the Chicago landscape seeing so many cranes was amazing!

What a time to be alive. in Chicago.

4 E Elm, Vue 53, the U of C dorms, and Nich 405 are all complete. There are probably a few others on the boom rundown list that are also complete. So we still have a bit to go before reaching 50 under construction.

Excellent! This seems like its dragged on as long as River Point. Imagine how many pages this thread would be had it been started way back when this project was announced. Daniel, please do not move for the next two years!

WTF is going on guys? CASE is in the dirt, yet not a single banana to be found. Have we forgotten our struggles of 2009-2012? For shame. These are the days of celebration!

Yes! Let's pressure the Kennedy and surround the drivers to remind them where they are! Maybe soon we can start seeing more dream proposals for capping the expressway in place for a park, maybe some day it can be a reality
