The towers are looking pretty good, although I feel a tad underwhelmed by the design. I think it's mostly the podium....it's just a clunker. Great dense project nonetheless,

To each their own. I respectfully disagree whole heartedly. I think it's a great design and is a gem in the South Loop but I would enjoy it anywhere in the city. Also even though there are some great pictures submitted on here, pictures cant do the glass justice, it is stunning in person.

One thing I wish they would have done is added a little more height to the taller of the two sections to add almost a "Vista" type affect. Either way though I think its very well done.

The tower is a stunner, I just think the design's a bit too subtle....and the podium is a work-in progress.

I really like how this is turning out. The vaginas in the center are quite striking!

Stunning! Wish this one filled in one of the vacant spaces on Michigan Ave on the park.

That first picture really shows just how dense the South Loop is starting to get now. 20 years have led to such huge changes, and the next 20 will make it look like a fluid continuation of the Loop proper

^ Agreed. Man does this look good. Between SoMi, Essex and OGP/NEMA, the South Loop is getting some fantastic new architecture.

This one really sticks out from UIC. How many floors do we have left to go?

If it sticks to the renderings, then we're very close to topping off:



That image shows four corner cuts in the glass, and then the equivalent of a fifth on its way to the top. The most recent photos on this site show four corner cuts and basically the equivalent of a fifth in construction materials.

I counted 43 floors above the podium in the rendering and maybe 40 or 41 floors built. The design clearly has changes some since the rendering though. The slices at the corners were all shifted down 5 floors with respect to the podium.

Wow, yeah the South Loop is looking fierce. And to think how comparatively barren it was around the turn of the millennium. Amazing the changes we have seen since then.
