I recently rode the construction elevator to the 15th floor of 1345 Wabash and climbed two flights of stairs to the roof to be greeted by the panoramic view you see above.
You’d have to swivel your head from to side to side to take in the full panorama. The shots above are a more realistic look at the views.
An opening between neighboring buildings should afford some of the 1345 residents a view of the fireworks at Navy Pier.
Soldier Field is close enough to the building that residents may hear the roar of the crowd when they step out on their balconies.
Thanks to Jason Etheridge, a Senior Superintendent at Lend Lease, for providing access to the roof.
1345 Wabash is the first new construction high-rise condos in downtown Chicago in half a dozen years. 1345 is targeting early 2015 occupancy for one-bedroom condos pre-completion priced from $228,900 and two-bedrooms from $290,900. A sales and design center is open at 1620 S Michigan Ave.
