Loop Spy Daniel sent in another one of his amazing photos of the construction of 73 East Lake Street. But, as he notes, timing is everything.
73’s not the only downtown Chicago tower that embarked on a major horticultural adventure amid such chilly temperatures. Aon Center (200 East Randolph Street) replaced pretty much all of the vegetation on its east side this week and last, leaving saplings, bushlets, and sprouts to the wiles of Chicago’s lakefront climate.
Not to worry, Daniel! Soon you’ll have the demolition of the four-story building at 200 North Michigan Avenue to watch, and the construction of its replacement — the identically-named 47-story skyscraper called 200 North Michigan Avenue.
