It was just a couple of days ago that River North Spy Chris sent us photos of crane parts being delivered to Wolf Point. Now… Bam! We have achieved crane!
Chris has sent in a new set of photos showing a legitimate, if diminutive, tower crane at the heart of the construction for the 628,500-square-foot Wolf Point East.
It won’t remain small for long. Wolf Point East is expected to rise 668 feet over the Chicago River, becoming the second of three new towers on the spit of land at the confluence of the Chicago River’s main and north branches.
The building, designed by Connecticut’s Pelli Clarke Pelli with River North’s Pappageorge Haymes has architect of record), will add just short of 700 apartments and 200 parking spaces to the Wolf Point complex. It also includes 3,500 square feet of retail space.
A third tower, also a PCP design, will go between this tower and bKL’s Wolf Point West, completed last year. The whole project is being developed by Houston’s Hines, and the Kennedy family.
