Chicago's Newest Skyscraper

I'm not talking about the recently approved design for a Cavalatra (?) spiraling tower near Navy Pier. This is the beginning of a new tower near us, on Lake Street. It will be a Mandarin Oriental ultra-luxury high rise hotel/condo. A look at Chicago's skyline any time of day reveals dozens of cranes and dozens of new buildings. If you haven't been to Chicago for three or four years, even, you will be surprised at the changes downtown.

I'll be in Chicago the week of July 5th for the Lay Carmelite Convocation. It will be great to see what changes are happening in my native land! Peace to you.
