Construction Update
Wolf Point East Shows Off, and Maybe Tops Off

Word on the street is that the second of three Wolf Point towers maybe, possibly, perhaps might have topped off.

River North Spy Chris sent in the photograph above, and the one below that back up the assertion that Wolf Point East has climbed as far as it can, though we have not yet gotten official word.

When complete later this year, Wolf Point East’s 60 stories are expected to reach 668 feet into the Chicago sky.  It’ll bring 698 new apartment homes to the confluence of the main and north branches of the Chicago River.  While that kind of presence would be a trophy tower in most other cities, this isn’t even the main event for Wolf Point.

Wolf Point South — now known as Salesforce Tower Chicago — is still to come.  Developer Hines and architecture firm Pelli Clarke Pelli will put up an office tower for the San Francisco software company.  Its exact height remains to be seen, but the most recent estimate is about 815 feet.

Location: 313 West Wolf Point Plaza, River North
