This one really looks great. Some nice touches really make it stand out. To the cheap builders who want to put up value engineered cookie cutter design boxes all over the city, shame on them. They show no respect for Chicago and are only concerned with their pocketbooks. They need to do a little something extra to stand out from the crowd just like they do in NYC.

I think the NY developers probably are just as concerned with their pocketbooks. It looks different in NY because it's a more competitive landscape.

This is one of those blue glass towers that manages to remain unique despite not bucking the trend. I love how it turned out

This is a very handsome tower...

^Indeed it is. And depending on the angle, we kind of got two towers out of the deal. :yes:

I'm digging the triangles at the top

Wonder what the bracing is for up there. Hope they light that at night...

According to the picture they have on their web site it looks like the might: http://theparagonchicago.com/wp-cont...2/building.jpg

Plus, they're calling themselves a "beacon of possibilities." How can they be a beacon without a giant fucking light at the top?

Don't worry, they'll add the de rigueur color-changing LED spot lights before you can say "ugh".

This is a bit of a sleeper hit....

I find this thing to be very fine.

I don't even care about height when it gets to this glass and design quality.

Diamonds as 'arĂȘtes' (Fr term for edges in geometry) are a subtle gem making up the building.

People on the spot will enjoy it, no doubt.

I hate to be greedy, but can anyone get a good shot of the base of this one from the street? This is like 90% great so far and I have held out hope the base is just as good.
