Back in June, we brought you the story
of Block 37's 22 West Washington, the Perkins+Will designed tower whose west wall suffered nearly 40 broken windows from a storm with 77 miles-per-hour peak winds. The saga continues.
This is what it looked like pre-storm . . .
post storm . . .
And yesterday, courtesy of another photo from our indefatigable correspondent Bob Johnson . . .
What was originally a uniform reflective curtain wall is now a full-scale deconstruction of the building. The removal of temporary glass from the top two floors reveals, not office penthouses, but a razor-thin cover for the mechanicals, more honestly expressed along the north elevation.
So, for now, we have the original glass panes, interspersed with various chads of temporary windows, board-ups, and, as of yesterday, voids. Stay tuned - who knows how it will all turn out?
if its the same contractor that did the original work, not good.
