Wolf Point, and renderings of a new office tower at 150 North Riverside were unveiled just last month.
That brick Metra building - and the ramshackle wooden stairway leading down to the river - is now only a memory, as another massive tower, River Point, is about to go up in their place. It's been designed for Hines Interests by Pickard-Chilton, architects of the 60-story 300 North LaSalle, completed in 2009. The actual building, to be set back from the river along Canal Street, has yet to break ground.
By August, there was enough green rebar in sight it might as well been St. Patrick's Day.
