The tower crane has since been erected, and the building’s service core is just beginning to rise above ground.
Dozens of workers from various trades were on-site yesterday building concrete forms, assembling rebar cages, moving materials about the site and more.
My vantage point for these shots was the balcony of a 28th-floor 2-bedroom apartment at Atwater, 355 E Ohio, directly across the street from the new building. Within a few weeks the building’s vertical progress will be visible from street level. The 490 apartments at the 44-story tower are slated for occupancy next year.
I was unsuccessful at capturing a clear shot of the crane operator, despite being relatively close in height. A part of the Alfred Caldwell-designed 2 ½ acre park at Lake Point Tower is visible behind the crane cab.
