A few weeks ago we told you that the first panes of glass were being applied to One Chicago, the two-tower residential complex rising in what used to be Holy Name Cathedral’s parking lot. Now we have two updated photographs showing the fenestration penetration at the site.
The first comes from Gold Coast Spy Joel, who took this picture from Chicago and State. If this turns into a dark corner of the city, don’t blame One Chicago. You can see how the building is turning into a gridded sheet mirror, reflecting the city around it, and especially the cathedral across the street.
When complete, One Chicago will have 800 residences in a 76-story tower, and a 49-story tower, plus ground floor retail that — last we heard — is supposed to include a grocery store.
