πŸ— Chicago begins August with *31 tower cranes in the air πŸ— (Correction: make that 30)Β 

We last updated our “official” Chicago Tower Crane Survey back in June. So with August here, it’s time to get a current count of what’s in the sky right now.

New to the list since June’s count:

  1. Moxy Hotel. Not new because it was just erected; new because I erroneously left it off the count. It needed a permit, so it qualifies. It’s been up since May.
  2. 1326 South Michigan (soon to get a new name, according to Murphy Development Group)
  3. Essex On The Park

Gone since June’s count:

  1. Alta Roosevelt
  2. 625 West Adams
  3. The Apple Store
  4. Hubbard221/412 North Wells

Coming Soon:

  1. Nobu Hotel Chicago (Stub planted July 25; this will get Centaur Construction on the board)
  2. The Lincoln Common (Tower crane permit issued July 17; this will get W.E. O’Neil on the board)

Endangered Cranes?

  1. Solstice On The Park Β (Topped out Monday, July 24)
  2. No. 9 Walton (Seems like it’s been topped out for weeks)
  3. *Elevate Lincoln Park (Topped out, I think)

*Not only topped out, but it’s coming down as of Tuesday morning, August 1.

Who has tower cranes?

  1. Lendlease – 9
  2. McHugh Construction – 7 (6, now that Elevate Lincoln Park is gone)
  3. Power Construction – 6
  4. Linn-Mathes – 2
  5. All tied with one apiece: Walsh Construction (1326 South Michigan), Clayco (CCCCHC), Pepper Construction (Moxy), Onni Group (Old Town Park), Macon Construction (No. 508), Tishman (Aloft Chicago Mag Mile), Norcon (Illume Chicago)

Here are Chicago’s 31 active tower cranes:
