Trees starting to sprout at the plazas of future downtown office towers

The new trees at 150 N. Riverside and River Point are on track—or rather over the train tracks

Not only are construction crews working to wrap up the final touches on the Chicago Riverwalk extension, but workers are also helping to breathe new life on the other side of the Chicago River where the future 150 N. Riverside and River Point office towers are under construction. It may not be as big of a milestone as breaking ground or topping off, but workers were spotted earlier this week planting trees at the ground-level plazas at both towers. Getting the landscaping prepped on a new tower is still a big deal and a clear sign that progress is being made and that the project as a whole is finally coming together. Here’s a look at the plazas for both office towers and a first look at the new trees that are joining street scape.
