Salesforce Tower Feels All Glassy

The skyscraper that we still prefer to call Wolf Point South has gotten some glass around its gills.

River North Spy Mike sent in these pictures of what is branded Salesforce Tower Chicago, the third of three skyscrapers that are transforming Wolf Point from a surface parking lot into a skyscraper nanodistrict on the Chicago River.

You can see that glass has been at least partially installed in the bottom four floors of what will eventually be a 60-story office tower with 1.5 million square feet of space.

Sixty stories is one floor shorter than Salesforce’s headquarters tower in San Francisco.  Sixty-one floors makes SFSF the tallest building in Frisco.  But in Chicago, that’s solidly in “meh” territory, and a massive lost opportunity given the prominence and zoning of this building’s location.
