If the curvy glass facade of 30 W Oak is meant to stand out, nearby 30 W. Erie in River North is meant to look like it has been there forever. It looks like construction on the 13-story building has reached the top floor and is headed toward the copper mansard roof, but it looks like things have changed at the top. In the rendering, windows on the top two floors look like they’re connected, which, along with the distinctive cap, is the most eye-catching feature of the design. Judging by the skeleton as it stands now, though, windows on the top two floors will be separated. Let’s hope they’re still wrapping those upper floors in limestone, which looks like it will contrast nicely with the red brick that covers the bulk of the building. Thirty W. Erie has 20 three-bedroom units (two per floor) priced from $1.1 million to $1.5 million, and the building also has ground-floor retail space. A sales center is located at 650 N Dearborn St.
