The South Tower is being anchored by Salesforce, but was chopped down to 813’

Salesforce on Friday will announce its plans to anchor an upcoming riverfront skyscraper and add at least 1,000 jobs to its Chicago workforce in the next five years.

The San Francisco-based software firm has leased about 500,000 square feet in the planned third and final tower in the Wolf Point development, said Elizabeth Pinkham, executive vice president of global real estate at Salesforce.

[…]

The building, dubbed Salesforce Tower Chicago, will become the company’s regional headquarters.

[…]

Developer Hines plans to begin construction of the 813-foot-tall tower around Jan. 1, 2020, with plans to complete the 1.2 million-square-foot building by early 2023, said Greg Van Schaack, a senior managing director at Hines.The city already has approved zoning for the project.

Beyond the Franklin Street Bridge, the water isn’t frozen… yet! by Neil Martin, on Flickr

The fog over the river looks really nice :smiley:
But the weather here was ridiculous last week! It was -52 one day and -48 the next. Very hard times up here in the north. I hope you all are staying warm!
