Construction Update

Block37 under construction

The bits and pieces are coming together for the new residential tower rising above the Block37 mall in downtown Chicago (25 West Randolph Street).  The picture above was taken yesterday by Loop Spy Ryan, and shows that the massive weight-shifting truss that makes the new building work with the old building has been enclosed.  Meanwhile, concrete forms are in place so that the floors of the SCB-designed building can be poured.

When complete, it will have 690 residences spanning 34 stories.

Location: 22 West Washington Street, The Loop
