Construction at 500 N. Lake Shore Drive in Streeterville continues to progress at an impressive clip. In just five months time, the tower has risen by around 30 stories, putting it within striking distance of its final height of 45 stories. And the glass ain't too far behind. Crews are almost done framing the ginormous, 10-story parking podium, which is sure to negatively impact the pedestrian experience at street-level. Designed by SCB, the 500-unit apartment building will include a pool, sundeck, landscaped rooftop terrace, and other high-end amenities, with occupancy planned for May 2013. Enjoy the pics!
