Construction Update
It’s Anchors Aweigh at One Grant Park

As the trio of Grant Park-adjacent skyscrapers begin their journeys from paperwork to parapets, today we take a peek in at One Grant Park (113 East Roosevelt Road/1200 South Indiana Avenue).

Construction crews were recently granted permission to build up to about 10% of the 76-story building’s eventual height.  And as you can see in the photo above from Joe Zekas at YoChicago!, no time is being wasted turning a former weedy lot into Rafael Viñoly’s vision of a pair of conjoined skyscrapers anchoring the southwest corner of Chicgao’s front lawn.

If you go to Lollapalooza this year, take lots of skyline pictures.  The photos you take next summer will look radically different.
