    Update photo for Site I (LSE) | 875 FT | 80 FLOORS from the meeting yesterday. This is a cluster of 3 towers(lower left) with 2 shorter towers around 600 feet and the one site I building on the end at between 875 and 950 feet. The Vista under construction now is the tall building on the right.

    Interesting. I was always thinking that the empty corner place would be prime location for something spectacular. Bummer for those living in the towers behind it. Their views of the lakeshore will be gone.
    Also interesting to see the plants on this rendering of the end part of the upper Wacker drive. Currently nothing but an ugly concrete dead-end. It would deserve something nicer.

    I'm always wondering what'll happen with the two empty lots on Franklin street? Prime real estate space in the financial district yet nothing going on for years.

    Is that an old design, then?

    Nice model cars, also... :)

    Isn't that ironic.

    BTW: I love French ebay. They have lots of other stuff on there which you can't find anywhere else.

    Started yesterday. Kind of cool but could use a better soundtrack. Maybe they could have a live band play on the Riverwalk to the lightshow.

    Another rendering by the same person with One Chicago Square in the middle. OCS is two buildings, one 1046ft and one 700ft and should change the balance of the skyline to the north. This is looking towards the east. This project has financing and will start construction in January 2019. Also photo of Chicago from the southeast taken on September 30th showing 4 of the buildings currently under construction that are visible from that view.

    Here is a wider view. This is a new webcam for Vista. The view will change a lot in the center by the mouth of the river over the next 3-4 years as they add the planned new buildings.

    The 747 over shot the runway on landing at the Halifax fuel stop. Happened to post a photo of it at ORD when photographing the Chicago skyline a few months ago.
