There’s new glass atop the topped-out 210 North Carpenter

210 North Carpenter April 2018

Off on the distance, glass is being added to the upper floors at 210 North Carpenter in the West Loop.

We’re seeing milestone after milestone in the impossibly-busy West Loop. Parking lots being plowed under, ground being broken, buildings topping out, glass being installed. It’s all happening, all over the neighborhood.

210 North Carpenter, the 12-story office building from Sterling Bay and the new HQ of general contractor Leopardo Companies, has recently met two of those milestones, having topped out and added the first level of glass to the tower. Curiously, that level is near the top, rather than the ground. The advantage to glazing your building that way, obviously, is to make it more noticeable to passers-by with cameras.

Have a look.

  1. the reason we started windows at the top was because we could, need the brick done on the lower floors before those windows can go in.
