The Gateway Apartments tower crane is halfway here

Late Wednesday afternoon at The Gateway Apartments tower-crane build.

It’s (almost) here! Global Builders’ tower crane we’ve been waiting to sprout (it *is* spring, after all) at 2050 West Ogden for The Gateway Apartments began its climb Wednesday. And while Thursday’s weather forecast doesn’t look particularly promising, Crane Completion is still expected this week. We’ll take another jaunt down to the Illinois Medical District in the next couple days so you all can see it fully erected and ready to lift the heavy stuff.

The rest of the parts are in place.

CTA and Metra rides, Zipcars, Divvy bikes, camera lenses, and solid walking shoes add up. You can help offset expenses with a greatly-appreciated donation to Building Up Chicago.
