Progress Report: The Clare at Water Tower

Every time we think this building is done, we wait a week and still work continues.  The Clare at Water Tower Place has been chugging along since 2006.  Back in the spring, construction crews put on the top — a four-story space that looks like it’s going to be part mechanical and part some kind of massive solarium.

For those of you who forget what the fugly four-story office building that used to be at this location looked like, there’s a video of the demolition over at the Clare’s web site.

We can’t wait to see what happens at the fanciest old folks home in the Midwest.
