Onni Group’s Christmas Crane returns to light up Chicago

Onni Group, developer and general contractor on the Atrium Village redevelopment in the Near North, is lighting up the Christmastime skies over Chicago for the second year in a row. The shiny blue neon adorning the tower crane above Atrium Village is a dead ringer for the tower crane Onni lit up last Christmas at The Hudson.

In the meantime, the pretty crane still has a job to do, and that’s piling parts on top of pieces to bring this 31-story tower to fruition. Pictures of progress, and a few more angles of the neon crane, follow:

  1. I would love to see this up for a long time, as maybe it could be a tribute to The Cubs! I was hurt in an accident 17 yrs ago & can’t decorate our home 4 the holidays like I used to do. The Christmas Crane was our tree as we can see it from our Old Town condo. We appreciate it so much & again would love to see it hang around for awhile. Thank you for making our holidays & lives a lot BRIGHTER!!!! ⛄️
