Since YIMBY’s construction tour of One Chicago in July, the tower crane has been disassembled and the parapet completed for the taller east tower of the massive two-tower development in River North. The aforementioned near-supertall stands 76 stories and 971 feet, while the shorter west tower reaches 49 stories and 574 feet. Both skyscrapers are connected via a 10-story podium that occupies most of the block bound by W Chicago Avenue, N State Street, W Superior Street, and N Dearborn Street. JDL is the developer of the 2.1 million-square-foot complex, having begun construction in 2019.
