You can remove a whole mess ‘o tower cranes from the official survey

Chicago had three tower cranes in various stages of removal over the weekend, while one–at UIC’s Harrison Hall–was already gone completely.

Hilton Hotels South Loop

The luffing crane at 1101 South Wabash has done all it can do for the two new Hilton Hotels.

In the South Loop, the crane Lendlease is using to build the Homewood Hilton Suites/Hilton Garden Inn combo at 1101 South Wabash has just sunk below the top of the tower.

Renelle on the River

A look at Saturday’s Renelle on the River tower-crane removal exercises.

In River North, McHugh Construction took down the tower crane that erected Renelle on the River in a big dang hurry.

210 North Carpenter

Yep, that’s a human atop the tower crane jib at 210 North Carpenter, as it’s removed from the site.

And in the West Loop, Leopardo Companies moved one step closer to completing their new headquarters by taking down the tower crane at 210 North Carpenter.

UIC Harrison Hall

Harrison Hall’s tower crane at UIC was already down before the weekend began.

There you have it. Four of the tower cranes listed on our May 2018 Survey that are now gone from the skyline.
