They've already got glass up on the first 2 floors. It's been dark when I've walked past but looks decent so far from what I've seen.

^ Thanks for the update Bvic. Good to see some new eye-catching architecture there in the south loop!

That glass looks cool! I think this building will look great when it is complete.

^^I just noticed in my own images, but look how the edges of the tower are cut off to create the shape.

This one and One South Halsted are two little gems from this boom. They are also built in good areas in need of some stand out architecture.

So far so good. The sculpted edges juxtapose nicely with that neoclassical bldg.

Glass is looking sharp. Very pleasant surprise.

Also, gives me hope that the entire tower might be curtain wall, which is always very nice to see on a residential tower.....sick of all the cheating-out with window wall.....

It still is window wall. It's called hybrid window wall. It looks like curtain wall, but the system starts and stops at the slab edges. Saves money on fire safing all the slab edges.

Wow, I never knew there was a hybrid window wall. That's amazing. It looks just like curtain wall. #icantbelieveitsnotbutter
