Another office tower to rise in West Loop

But CA, White Oak and development partner Casey Wold—the former head of Tishman Speyer Properties' Chicago office, who became involved in the project in 2014—said their group has the financing to put up a 432,000-square-foot office building at 625 W. Adams St.

The projects include River Point, a 52-story tower Hines is building at the Chicago River and Lake Street, Riverside Investment & Development's 53-story tower at 150 N. Riverside Plaza and John Buck's 35-story tower at 151 N. Franklin St.

Hines in May 2012 announced plans to build its tower at 444 W. Lake St. on spec. But about seven months later—before it even completed a platform over train tracks on which the tower is being constructed—law firm McDermott Will & Emery became the first of several tenants to commit to move there.

    Does spending more money on a swank gym membership translate to more calories burned? We're not convinced that fitness needs to cost more than the price of a decent pair of athletic shoes and the time it takes to do pushups and burpies until we puke.
