Wolf Point Now Home to a Pack of Skyscrapers

We looked it up, and the minimum number of wolves required to make a “pack” is three.  Which works out well for the confluence of the Chicago River and its North Branch, where three skyscrapers now populate Wolf Point.

River North Spy Sam sent in these photos of Wolf Point South, now known as Salesforce Tower Chicago, as it reaches skyscraper status at the APEX of the land mass.  

Salesforce made a big deal about anchoring the 1,500,000 square foot office building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli for Hines.  Since then, Salesforce, itself, has gone to a flex-work model, meaning people will only come to work a couple of days a week.  Awkward.
