It was never an issue. It was just a journalist making a bigger deal out of something than it was.

Spoke with a person heading into the building this afternoon. She said they're still pulling furniture out this week and that demo will begin before month-end.

I've mentioned this before; the architecture tours will be a real treat this summer with all the action at Vista, Wolf Point East, 110 and even the Post Office.

Any project that requires federal government involvement or funding typically has what is called a Section 106 review process when historic or potentially historic (or archeological) resources are involved. In this case it was determined that sufficient mitigation to this historical loss was to document the existing building and to save a certain number of stainless steel spandrel panels to be reinstalled somewhere public on the site of the new building (maybe as cladding for the new river wall).

I talked about this project all last summer on the tours.

“The Plan Commission approves an amendment for the project at 110 N. Wacker Drive to allow for an additional 100,000 square feet of office space. That increases the Neighborhood Opportunity Bonus payment to $22.03 million for the 1.6 million square foot project.”

This is like you offering me food, me telling you that I just ate and I'm not hungry, then you telling me about how humans have to eat. I get that there was a review, etc., but it was never in danger of holding up the project as the Curbed article made it sound.

My girlfriend works across the street and she just texted to say a backhoe of some sort is on site and tearing up the small garden/smoking area on the north side of the building. (Wacker and Randolph)

First "construction" equipment she has seen on site.

That's not an insignificant increase. What is the pre leasing on this thing?
