Anybody have insight on when the construction lift/elevator is coming down?

It seems like it is taking forever to close this building up.

Was on the Chicago department planning twitter page and seen they have updated vista height at 1,198 ft

It's more like a model who has several scars across her face. She's a beautiful building, but those scars are glaring.

Two things, speaking for myself; 1) the blow-thru is cool. An asset even. Modern architecture.* Looking forward to it being lit up. Which it will be, imo.**

Second, those vents towards the top third were disarming at first blush but are just fine. Had to let it sink in, but they're fine now to me. Form follows function and black is sharp.

* Name three US cities that have reached blow-thru status. I'll wait.

**the Hanncock can blast light on it's antenna's and light a ring around it's top floor but Vista can't light it's blow-thru which is above all other buildings nearby? Give me a break.

From yesterday



From a distance, the blow-through really grabs the eye...

Form follows function doesn't mean function follows form.

Are you aware that the blowthrough floor on the Vista is the result of an engineering mistake? Name 5 buildings in the US taller than Vista that didn't need a blowthrough hole. I'll wait. People celebrating such a huge mistake in building design, one that drastically interrupts the flow of the originally intended design, is so bizarre.

I don't remember if this informative July 2017 article was discussed regarding the blow-through:
