A chunk of aluminum fell from 875 North Michigan Avenue, the building once known as the John Hancock Tower, but no injuries were reported.

The piece of cladding fell from 875 North Michigan Avenue around 3 p.m. Wednesday and landed on a planter on the south side of the building near Chestnut Street, according to Brian Pelrine, the 2nd Ward’s director of zoning and contracting.
