Smoke on the Water & the Non-Existent Building

Smoke on the Water & the Non-Existent Building

It was cold in Chicago at the end of December so that the Chicago River gave off steam. It was an unusual scene for me and I took a picture.

The photo came out less impressive than the actual scenery and I decided to not post it. But in a few weeks demolition of the building in the background had started, by mid-March #littlewasleft, and now it is completely gone.

I've learned that this five stories tall building was the headquarters of General Growth Properties Inc. (110 N Upper Wacker Drive). It should be replaced by a modern riverfront tower. Let's see.
