At the Chicago Architecture Blog we make every effort to ensure that our articles are properly illustrated. As they taught us in J-school: “Say ‘monkey,’ see monkey.” But in this modern media age, sometimes completeness is sacrificed for swiftness. That’s why the CBS Evening News is better than the Huffington Post.
Such expediency is why we were unable to bring you renderings of 352 North Union last week. 352 is the 38-story residential tower that Cardiff Mason Development wants to cozy up to K2, adjacent to Hubbard’s Cave.
