Was in Chicago for a few days this week and was able to set aside my lunch hour to get some shots of the work going on downtown. Wow!

Trump International, almost topped out. The hotel on the lower floors is now open during construction:

Scratch that. Trump Tower has a long way to go before it's topped out

Or ride your bike on down:

Or catch a water taxi:

Beautiful blend of old and new:

All kidding aside, these Chicago River Architectural Tours are the bomb.

Didn't catch the name of this office building rising (not residential, I'm pretty sure). Near Merchandise Mart and the Chicago School? Anyone?

edit: answer is 300 North Lasalle. Rendering

I heart Marina Towers:

Waterview Towers, featuring the Shangri-La Hotel and residences, at State and Wacker:

(They even have mid-rise construction trailers in Chicago)

Chicago's version of Times Square:

MoMo (Modern Momentum) with a big friggin hole in the middle (to squeak around the height and air space regulations in the Loop):

(too bad the developer went cheap and the curtain wall has started to come off)

108 North State mixed-use. 600 footer (?) to be added above.

Looking back toward the Chicago Theater, the Wit, and Trump peaking out from behind:

Macy's and the Red Line station:

Hurry up and wait....

In the heart of the Loop.

The area near Dearborn and Monroe probably has THE largest collection of International Style buildings in existence.

You can stand in one Mies, looking at another Mies (or SOM), with another Mies in the background:

And even a Portman???

Sheer face, Chicago style!!

Nice collection of downtown photos.

Though, I would call the grouping of the Trump, IBM and Wrigley buildings - Son, Dad and Grandad.
