How does the Kingdom Tower have a Chicago connection or the CMG Tower in Beijing?

Kingdom Tower was designed by a Chicago architecture firm. Not sure about CMG.

Wait a minute. How "new" are we talking. I was in Chicago August 2017 and I went to the Chicago Architecture Foundation and it was just a glorified gift shop. It was, like, 6:00 PM, though.

Brand new. They opened their new location the week after Labor Day.

Models don't typically represent the lighting scheme. It's simply meant to highlight/illuminate the form of the building

Kingdom Tower is an Adrian Smith design as was Burj Dubai when he was at SOM.

Also Kingdom tower is literally just The Illinois:

I wonder why units in this building are so much cheaper than those in some of the other new marquee condo towers like 432 Park and 220 CPS, which have upper floor units priced well above $10k per sqft

I never noticed this until closely examining the model but the random placement of the east/west windows will create a really cool lighting effect at night.

One57 isi now in 4th place on 57th Street. It would be further back if 53w53 weren't back a few blocks. I think at the current pace, Steinway could temporarily pass Central Park Tower.

Why are terra cotta pieces falling off? It’s not even finished and already falling apart?

Where do you see that?

^ Probably a reference to this story...

As photographer Andrew Campbell Nelson documented, fragments of the terracotta appear to be missing from the facade. JDS told YIMBY “The gaps are where mounting brackets for the monorail system will go, and after the rig is jumped, it gets filled. There is also a system of redundant attachments to prevent anything from falling.” The highly transparent façade was designed to maximize views of the historic Steinway Building from the street as well as interior natural lighting.
