Tower crane stub in the house! No, seriously. They built a house for it.

Flag, Crane, Plane, and Train at 1125 West Van Buren.

Chicago’s most unique new residence is at 1125 West Van Buren, where Tandem has built a new house for its tower crane. Closed in on three sides, with the south façade left open for views of the Eisenhower Expressway(?), the humble abode will protect the crane stub from animal attacks and ogling Target shoppers. More importantly, crews will be on site this week to erect the full tower crane, making up for the one Chicago just lost at 717 South Clark.
