^^Yeah totally. I think this one blows 110 out of the water. The details are great.

this might have the nicest facade of the myriad of Goettsch Towers in Chicago

In 10 -20 years I think we can look back on this period of blue glass towers and recognize this for the gem it is in terms of facade and location

Yep. This glass is first rate.

I've gone from pretty underwhelmed about this tower to now very excited to see the final result.

I was over on around Clybourn/Webster and Elston/Cortland the other day (Lincoln Yards/CH Robinson Area) and this elevator core already has a huge presence from the area. From that angle, the only thing that appears "past" the Sears are presidential towers and this.

We really built a lot of this "style" this cycle. In One Chicago, 300N Michigan, The Paragon, River Point, 150 Riverside, and WPE. Am I missing anything? Some are certainly better than others.

Is there any other US city seeing this large of a percentage of new buildings with blue glass recently constructed?

Can't forget 110 N Wacker

From their webcam this evening. Looks like the developers are a little superstitious - Skipping floor 13.

Hudson Yards, which will likely have future phases of blue glass towers but at least most of them go a bit bolder with height and the roof & facade designs. I'd gladly trade one of those supertalls for 300N Michigan.

and yeah as Sky mentioned 110 N Wacker...
built or U/C: WPW, Salesforce, arguably Vista, Old Town Park(kinda), One Eleven, Legacy, 300 N LaSalle, Imprint, half of streeterville?
proposed: 301 & 321 S Wacker, 330 N Clark (behind Reid Murdoch), Parcel O, conceptual renderings for tallest 3 towers of North Union, and likely prevalent in the 78 and Lincoln Yards.
I'm sure there are others.

Several people in the past have commented economic and environmental factors as to why these are all sprouting up, but it doesn't change the fact that they're overdone and, barring a few exceptions, detract from our status as an architecture capital. For the next 70+ years the confluence of our river is going to be mostly surrounded by blue towers... a prime location to showcase our architectural best for the world to see, and we popped up 5-6 blue boxes... not very inspiring

That's actually relatively common in highrises.
