YIMBY has image updates for the future 813-foot-tall Wolf Point South in River North after providing permit updates earlier this week. The 58-story office tower at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza will be the third and final installation of River North’s Wolf Point complex. A recent photo captured the caissons, concrete, and rebar beginning to form a portion of the footprint. Despite a single mobile crane currently occupying the site, freestanding crane permits have been approved, with installation likely imminent as foundation work continues.
Additionally, YIMBY has updated massing visualizations to demonstrate the tower’s significance once completed. The first, with aerial imagery facing northwest, highlights Wolf Point South as a new prominent corner of the Chicago’s densest skyscraper region. Both the first and second visualizations also highlight Wolf Point South’s addition to the new plateau of 600- to 800-foot-tall skyscrapers enclosing the Chicago River’s downtown confluence. The third image shows how Wolf Point South’s width will dramatically conclude a straight stretch of the Chicago River’s main stem corridor.
The Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed tower emulates and expands upon the asethetic of the recently-completed nearby Wolf Point East. Both towers involve a series of setbacks, a sleek glass facade textured with mullions, and cut-out walls. The main differences will include their perpendicular orientations. The south tower will also be 148 feet taller than the east, at 813 feet and 665 feet, respectively. Lastly, the south tower will anchor Salesforce at half-a-million square feet of space, and thus include its logo atop the crown.
Completion and occupancy are slated for 2023.
