Magic Fingers: The Most Spectacular Engineering Show in Chicago Right Now on Display at 150 North Riverside

Magic Fingers: The Most Spectacular Engineering Show in Chicago Right Now on Display at 150 North Riverside

    ArchitectureChicago PLUS
    It will become much taller and much shinier by the time it's finished, but 150 North Riverside will never look quite as spectacular as it does right now. Designed by Goettsch Partners with Magnusson Klemencic Associates as structural engineers, on a site on the south branch of the Chicago River just after it splits in two, the building will eventually rise 54 stories and a height of somewhere around 700 feet.

Vu Tran's Dragonfish revisits the ghosts of Vietnam

Book launch Mon 8/3, 6 PM, Open Books, 651 W. Lake, 312-475-1355, open-books.org, free.

    Vu Tran's Dragonfish revisits the ghosts of Vietnam
    click to enlarge The Asian arowana, or dragonfish, the creature that gives its title to U. of C. prof Vu Tran's first novel, looks like a golden Chinese dragon and is supposed to bring good luck. But the book itself more closely resembles a hermit crab: a literary novel that borrows the snail shell of noir to give itself a form and structure.

Construction Watch: Take a Tour of the Building Boom Currently Underway in Downtown Chicago

At the riverfront trio to the west, crews at the Goettsch Partners-designed 150 North Riverside has been busy installing steel as the much anticipated cantilever takes shape and the tower crane has been erected.

Meanwhile across the street, the Pickard Chilton designed River Point office tower at 444 West Lake has about 30 of its 53 floors of steel now framed out.

Next door, the site has been cleared for the 13-story Center Point Properties data center at Calumet and 21st...

Further north at 1333-1345 South Wabash, CMK's 144-unit condo project is finished, while the 28-story rental project One Triple Three next door has excavated the site.

Crossing into the Loop Community Area, JDL's 1000 South Clark with 29 floors and 469 rental units is just about topped out with glazing now...

The SCB-designed 1001 South State is now really starting to take off with the tower past the more complicated levels of the parking podium and amenity deck. The 40 story, 398 unit structure now reaches the 14th floor.

At 85 East Wacker Drive, work crews with W.E. O'Neil construction have now almost fully fireproofed the steel framed London House hotel annex and glass has begun installation on the first three floors.

Further north along State Street, the even more exclusive 4 East Elm, with 35 units in a slender 25-story SCB-designed tower has reached the 16th floor.

Further west, Gerding/Edlen Development's 18-story GREC-designed rental tower at 625 West Division is nearing completion.

    Take a Tour of the Building Boom Currently Underway in Downtown Chicago
    Summer is cranking along and so is Chicago's construction scene. In case you've missed it, the city is experiencing a boom in new construction. Thousands of new apartment units and hotel rooms are on the way, and the city's skyline is littered with cranes that are helping construct these new developments.
