The Liberty Place Towers in Philly still look great, as well as the Messeturm in Frankfurt and 50 West in NY. Just to name a few.

Aside from that this was not my favorite. Not really a huge loss, hopefully something nice rises here though.

Gives us all a lot more time to (a) hope for a better design and (b) save up for the 20-25% down banks will probably ask for in the future.

Is there a reason Lagrange is the go-to? There is evident demand for the style. Others should be able to command that work

We'll have to agree to disagree on that...

Liberty Place Towers are borderline iconic they are so good. These other two you mentioned are VERY "meh". Despite him being here in Chicago for a long time, I just don't like most of his work, especially the stuff that has been put up in Chicago. I'm still hoping for the Thomspon Center to be completely rehabbed or torn down.

Do his products flop? If not, then offering a successful product at reasonable costs will ensure he gets to continue producing less than stellar visuals. And he's been doing it for so long here I'm sure he has very wide reaching connections.

Sure, if buyers are not discerning then that is what they will get. But then there should be room for more alternatives that would provide a contrast. There are a few

Minor activity on site. Truck brought some new rebar cages for piles on monday. Seem to be a small diameter compared to the current ones.

Is there a chance this isn't totally dead?

If not, why on earth would they bring those to the site?

I wonder if its rebar that was purchased before it got shut down and where ever it was being stored needed to be freed up so they just put it brought it there?
