Coast Crane Jumps the Swissôtel

Tower crane at The Coast

While you were enjoying Sunday doing whatever it is that you do on Sundays, the team at The Coast (345 East Wacker Drive) was busy raising its tower crane.  One of our Lakeshore East spies sent us a picture and you can see the men hard at work in the photo above.  The crane is now just slightly taller than the neighboring Swissôtel (323 East Wacker Drive), which makes us think that The Coast will end up slightly shorter in height.
