The Height of the Coast

As they say in the upper Midwest, “That’s all the further she goes!”

The Coast

The Coast (345 East Wacker Drive) has officially topped out, according to a post on bKL Architects Facebook page.  The building has 46 residential stories on top of five floors of parking.  The photo above shows the Coast and its great view over Navy Pier (600 East Grand Avenue).  In terms of visual height, the Coast ended up about two stories taller than the Swissôtel next door. More photos to come.
