Construction Update
Wolf Point Finally Something to Howl About

Wolf Point West under construction

The surface parking and muddy mess that once was Wolf Point are now officially memories, as the Wolf Point West tower (350 North Orleans Street) begins to stake its claim along the Chicago riverfront.

This photo was taken last evening by one of our Fulton River District spies. It shows the residential building–designed by friends-of-the-blog and Chicago’s own bKL Architecture–is up to its 13th floor already. Just 35 stories left to go!

Once Wolf Point West is complete, the other two Wolf Point buildings (combination office and hotel towers designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli of Connecticut) can go up.

Location: 350 North Orleans Street, River North
