Description
- This is a fantasy drawing by illustrator Supertall.

- The tower includes six, mega-helical turbines located in holes pierced though the lateral side of the tower at the top, which reduce wind loads, and generate power for the structure.

- The tower is an ovular shape, with 4 wings with the total shape fitting inside a perfect square.

- The orientation of the tower is off of the grid, such that the turbine apertures face to align with prevailing winds.

- The Chicago "L" rapid transit system passes through the base of the tower mid-block at harrison, where a new train station will be constructed, linking elevated and subway trains.

- The tower has recesses in a pattern that are lit up at night with the beam of light that emanates from the top.
