There’s lots of work going on at River Point (444 West Lake Street), the new Hines project in the Fulton River District that overlooks the confluence of the Chicago River and the North Branch of the Chicago River.

Barges bearing cranes are building a bulwark against the water for the project’s portion of the Chicago riverwalk network. ¬†Eventually it will extend over the adjacent Amtrak tracks forming a new park. ¬†You’ll remember that the city is requiring Hines to build the public park first, and its 45-story tower second.
