Tishman Speyer announces topping out of 320 North Sangamon

When I posted photos of 320 North Sangamon last week, I counted the floors that were done and estimated, with my math skills, that it had topped out.

Nailed it!

Tishman Speyer has released a video (link below) to commemorate the topping out. Congrats all around.

Photos coming

8/17/20. I still like the water tanks almost as much as I like construction.

In case you were wondering, I still make it out and about to take photos downtown. I haven’t been posting them here because I don’t know what to say about them. But maybe you don’t care about words. Maybe you’d just like to peruse the pictures.

I’ll try to make a few posts from the pics I shot these last two Mondays (Monday is my only day off from the dreaded day job) August 17 and 24.

Progress Update: The Joan and Paul Rubschlager Building

Fun Fact: The crane at Rush University Medical Center’s Joan and Paul Rubschlager Building is the westernmost tower crane currently at work in Chicago. Nope, 1520 West Harrison ain’t all that far west, but it’s the winner. Everything happening cranewise in this town is east of Ashland Avenue.

Funner Fact: Until the stub at 1000M grows into a full-fledged tower crane, and/or the tower crane at 1277 East 60th in Woodlawn is erected, the Rubschlager Building is also Chicago’s southernmost crane, now that 717 South Clark is craneless. Your mind is blown, right?
