It’s been some time since the first of two new residential towers topped off on the corner of Roosevelt and Indiana. And during the construction, standing there silently in a supporting role, there was the tower crane that made it all possible.
It may have been silent because it doesn’t have a mouth, or lungs, or sarcasm. Or it may have been silent because it simply didn’t speak our language.
If you didn’t get to know the mechanical marvel that put up NEMA Chicago, it’s too late. In the photograph above you can see the crane is now coming down, having done yeoman service for the city’s skyline. Thanks to Loop Spy Jody for sending in the photograph.
But maybe… just maybe… it’ll be back for act two on this site, as a second tower is waiting in the wings.
