Construction Update
Wolf Point West Topps Out

Wolf Point West under construction

Wolf Point’s left canine is growing with all the frenzy of Soupy Sales’ imaginary radio dog, White Fang… if you’re old enough to remember that sort of thing.

If you’re not, let’s just say that Wolf Point West is a visual force to be reckoned with, imposing its presence on the Chicago riverfront before the seeds of its two companion towers have even been planted.  More importantly, it has now topped out, reaching its final height of 493 feet.

Wolf Point West now rises 48 stories into the sky, and this photograph sent in by one of our regular Fulton River spies shows the exterior skin is almost caught up to that height, too.

This article is the result of photos sent in by someone just like you. If you see something interesting in your neighborhood, e-mail your phone pics to Check out our Tip Line for other ways to tip us off, like by text message.
