Wolf Point: The Hole That Keeps on Giving

Wolf Point under construction

Never before has a hole in the ground inspired so much hope and promise in the hearts of skyscraper fans across Chicago.

One if our spies sent in this picture of the construction work at Wolf Point, which at this point amounts to a big hole in the ground where a parking lot used to be, and where a parking garage was before that.

But with each bucket of dirt moved, the west tower of the billion-dollar Wolf Point project comes closer to completion.  The first goal is to put up the 493-foot-tall residential tower designed by friends-of-the-blog, bKL Architecture.

So far, all that’s been built is a very deep pit.  But tall trees have deep roots.  Except palm trees. But they don’t grow in Chicago anyway.

    I take you back to when they first began digging the Spire hole.
