    They are calling the under construction 110 North Wacker the Bank of America Tower now. It's as big if not bigger than their "headquarters" building in square footage and is over 800 feet tall.

    On a slightly related note: Currently reading "Man on wire" by Philippe Petit, the guy who did a wire walk between the two towers of the WTC. Phantastic read. My me think it would be so cool if we had one of these events here in town again. Loved the one a couple years ago across the river. It's not that we don't have enough sky scrapers to pull some wire from.

    I will be moving into that 110 N Wacker office in a couple of years. I hear it will be pretty sweet. Will report out after I have a chance to settle in.

    I once had a chance to run (or climb) to the top via the stairwell years ago. Didn't do so bad and I made it all the way to the top. Fun and exhausting.
