It feels good to write something about activity in The Loop again.
The former GGP headquarters at 110 North Wacker Drive in The Loop has begun to crumble into the Chicago River. Not by accident, of course. And not actually into the water. There’s a barge out there on the river, and Heneghan Wrecking is using it to haul away debris from the demolition of the six-story building, making space for the much-anticipated 54-story, Goettsch Partners-designed office tower 110 North Wacker, from the Howard Hughes Corporation and Chicago’s Riverside Investment and Development.
The start of demolition at 110 North Wacker immediately vaults the site to the top of the official Tower Crane Anticipation list. Though that could change, if 145 South Wells gets underway. Stay tuned.
I think all the debris is being hauled out from lower Wacker drive, as the barge has stayed empty and there is a huge hole that goes through all the floors. I guess they have been pushing all the debris into the hole in each of the floors to be loaded into trucks below.
