New Photos and Visualizations Show Future Impact of Wolf Point South on Downtown Core

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.

Construction Commences at Wolf Point South aka Salesforce Tower in River North

Construction has begun on foundations for Wolf Point South, also known as Salesforce Tower, and will rise 813 feet over 58 stories. Addressed as 333 W Wolf Point Plaza in River North, the tower will stand at the three-way fork of the Chicago River, with the other two towers, Wolf Point West and Wolf Point East, sitting to the sides of it. Permit filings show that the foundation permits were issued in April, approving the construction of the caissons and foundation structure up to grade level, including the below-grade parking. Permits for Phase 1 of construction, covering foundation construction and tower crane installation and use, were issued this past week. Full building permits have been filed for the tower portion of the project, but await approval. Wolf Point South, LLC is the owner behind the applications.
