Do we have any more information on this building because the older, better looking tower is still on their website too. This reminds me a little too much of one of the buildings in WTC complex (which is not a good thing). I do like the trees.

^Agreed. Looks like a recycled version of the other 2.

I honestly don't mind when architectural periods produce groups of similar looking buildings. The style will eventually change and it keeps the cityscape more integrated and consistent visually. Helps prevent Dubaitis.

^ Some of the most beloved designs (period pieces) are the same design replicated 10,000 times (i.e. the Chicago bungalow)

^ yeah but the old design was so sexy, its a tragedy we lost it. This new design would be a great filler farther south, not this close to 110 wacker.

I think it's just amazing these 3 huge buildings will tuck away into Chicago's skyline. In virtually any other city in the US besides NYC these buildings would be very prominent.

Yep, and different doesn't always mean good (also referring to Dubai here). If it ain't broke and we're not building 30 of the same tower then I see no problem. I just wonder what kind of cliche/derivative designs we'll be bemoaning in 10 years

From some angles yes, from many angles it will disappear in the forest of skyscrapers we have.

If you look at this plot on google maps doesnt it seem rather large for this building to cover?..it looks like there are 2 different blocks between 100 to 130 north Franklin...they could easily fit 2 buildings there?

I'd say it'll stick out from more angles than it'll be disappeared because of its positioning. From all Western and Southern views it'll be prominent, and some Northern. I can't completely envision it from the East over the lake, but even there I think it may be visible from Southeasterly views

This one will be completely blocked from the west by the taller 110 N Wacker.

While we are talking about possible building trends in Chicago, I would love to see more bundled tube (Sears)/multiple setback(Nema) towers built in the next few years. I really like Detroit's Hudson Tower, too.

That's quite an ambitious depiction of trees.

The tree fad will continue until one grows large enough that a thunderstorm takes one off the 40th floor and puts it through the roof of a car or someone's window killing them. Then the litigation lawyers will ensure we never see a rooftop tree again.
