TrueLook's 5 Billionth Construction Image

Unlike TrueLook’s previously celebrated “billionth photos,” the 5 billionth photo was captured after the sun went down and lights filled the skyline in Chicago. On May 21, 2021 at 9:59 pm EDT / 8:59 pm CDT, TrueLook snapped a picture from Skender’s construction camera on their project at 609 W. Randolph in Chicago, Il.

This class-A office development at 609 W. Randolph in the West Loop Gate neighborhood in Chicago is a 15-story, 100,000+ square-foot building, developed by Vista Property Group and designed by Antunovich Associates. Construction is scheduled to be completed in early 2022.
