I’ve always wondered why they didn’t do that. I guess they didn’t want to break up the Michigan Avenue elevation with a weird angled section ( as much as I’d like the view of Carbide & Carbon preserved, I feel like that would look kind of awkward). We should at least be thankful that they didn’t plunk it right on the corner and obscure the view of C&C from the bridge completely. If I’m picturing it right in my head, you should still be able to get a glimpse of it from the Tribune/Pioneer Court side. I’m not in Chicago, so maybe one of you guys can tell me for sure.

No need to turn it, they just should have pushed the tower a little more north and then had the developer make it a little thinner so it could be pushed back off Michigan slightly more.

great shots as usual Harry. Imagining the tower from this angle, wish it were taller and/or more interesting than this nondescript blue box... from above 4 stories I guess.

The river corridor is really starting to approach Midtown Manhattan levels of "cram em in" skyscraper density. The difference being our suprerior public planning leaving more views because of things like the river, Columbus, LSE Park, and Boule Mich. Once LSE, Spire Site, and the old Mandrin site are built out, The area between Randolph and Kinzie from Wolf Point East is going to be quite a sight to behold.
