Construction is approaching the halfway mark for Salesforce Tower Chicago in River North. Rising 60 stories at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza, the new office building is being developed by Hines as the final act of a three-part masterplan known as Wolf Point.
Core work for Salesforce Tower Chicago, aka Wolf Point South, now stands at around 20 stories, with the main structural frame beginning to rise around it. Planned by Hines and located at 333 Wolf Point Plaza in the southwest corner of River North, the 60-story office tower serves as the tallest and final staple to the company’s three-act megadevelopment known as Wolf Point.
Core work has reached several floors above grade for Salesforce Tower Chicago, originally known as Wolf Point South, a 60-story office building on the River North side of the Chicago River’s confluence. Planned by Hines in partnership with the Joseph P. Kennedy Family, the skyscraper will measure 813 feet to its pinnacle, qualifying as the seventh tallest project in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end development countdown.
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.
