Glass installation for the 60-story Salesforce Tower at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza is nearly complete. The 850-foot-tall, office-oriented skyscraper by Hines is approaching its anticipated 2023 completion, and already stands out as a cornerstone of the expanding northwest skyline. Featuring a neomodernist design by Pelli Clarke & Partners, the tower is outfitted with a tapered setback massing and a predominantly glass facade.
Now standing its final height of 850 feet, the 60-story Salesforce Tower in River North has now removed its tower crane. Well on track to reach completion by next year, this glassy skyscraper at 333 Wolf Point Plaza will be the city’s 17th tallest skyscraper. It will also mark the final installment in a three-part megadevelopment by Hines known as Wolf Point. Located at the confluence of the Chicago River, this scheme also includes a 500-foot apartment tower known as Wolf Point West, as well as a 679-foot apartment tower dubbed Wolf Point East.
The final steel pieces are being added to Salesforce Tower Chicago, rising 60 stories at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza in River North. This 850-foot-tall skyscraper is the final, and tallest, staple in Hines‘ three-part masterplan known as Wolf Point. With more than a third of its floor area anchored by the tech giant Salesforce, the 1.4 million-square-foot edifice will house primarily offices, below which will be retail and dining within its base.
This week, the concrete core for Chicago’s Salesforce Tower reached its full height, marking a key milestone for the 60-story skyscraper rising at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza along the confluence of the Chicago River. As noted in a LinkedIn post by the general contractor Walsh Construction, the final height of the core stands 840 feet, falling in line with recent speculation of a 15-foot height bump. Furthermore, it appears that the final architectural height of the edifice will now be 850 feet above the river walk, once the superstructure is accounted for.
At the confluence of the Chicago River, a 60-story office tower nears its full height. Salesforce Tower, the third tallest construction project in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown, will eventually stand 835 feet above the river bank once it completes in 2023. Located at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza, the skyscraper will serve as the third and final addition to the Wolf Point masterplan in River North. This larger scheme is the site of a long-undeveloped parking lot that is owned by the Joseph P. Kennedy Family. Together with developer Hines, the two parties have planned three edifices on this parcel, just in front of the former Chicago Sun Times building.
