This is an ugly angle though, most of the picture is dominated by the ugly party wall.

It's not a pretty building, but the street facing facade isn't *too* bad. There's certainly much worse out there, brutalist or otherwise.

That said, we really need to get rid of the last two or three remaining lots on Boul Mich. Having them linger around is just plain embarrassing.

The site has potential I think. Isn't it the former site for Park Tower?

^ I believe that was the old YWCA further south on Michigan. They were supposed to preserve the facade and build the tower behind it. Plans fell through, and the building had to be demolished due to its very poor state or repair.

Such a shame. I liked that one, and its crown. I'd like a Madarin Oriental type of design on one of those Mich ave. Lots.

10 May 2018, taken from State Street with 30 E Balbo on the left. You can just barely see the NEMA crane to the left of 41 E 8th and the crane on the far right is for the Hilton Homewood.

Overall it’s turning out great, but I’m just slightly disappointed at how visible the vertical rows of opaque “spandrel” glass are on the long sides. Although I suppose as people move in and start installing different blinds and things they should become less prominent, am I right?

^it is rental, so blinds are all the same. But you are right that this won’t be as noticeable when people are occupying the building.

View from Adler Planetarium. This is having a bigger impact on the skyline that I would have guessed in the beginning.
