Wood Partners‘ latest skyscraper is making its mark in the South Loop skyline. Alta Roosevelt (801 South Financial Place) has climbed higher than most of its immediate neighbors, and is at that point in its development where it simply cannot be ignored.
Joe Zekas from YoChicago! sent us the photograph above, showing just how far the Pappageorge Haymes-designed residential block has come since it wriggled to the surface of the muddy former river bank. When finished, it will have 496 apartments across 33 floors, and a parking podium with 348 spaces, since we know how much people in the South Loop love their parking.
And what’s that second, bright yellow crane immediately behind Alta Roosevelt? Why it’s working on Riverline, the enormous riparian development that’s going to bring several thousand new people to the South Loop amid a garden-like setting.
