Looks like a great place for a cocktail and to watch 400 LSD and T2E rise.

The St. Regis in Bora Bora is super nice.

I'm OK with the name change, and I'm guessing it will probably end up being much better than whatever they eventually decide to call "875 North Michigan Avenue."

Meh, I'd rather Chicago (and possible Tribune Tower East) get a unique, 'first in the US' hotel, like the Langham or Virgin Hotel (but 5 star), rather than a flag that already has a presence here. Shangri-la seems so...2008.

At what point does a spire become required, if ever?

Spires tend to look better on buildings that taper to form a pinnacle...like the Chrysler building, met life..etc... having random spires on flat top buildings is ehh...it grows on you after awhile but i mean from an architectural standpoint doesn't seem to add much to the building except vanity height.

Instead of a spire they should have built this tower infinitely tall to the vanishing point like Brancusi's Endless Column.

Now that would be cool! Plus then Chicago would reign forever as the home of the WTB since we would have an infinitely tall building.

Any other silly hypotheticals that would never happen that we should discuss while we are at it?

I've been critical of him at times, but he's had at least two very recent reviews (this and 110 N Wacker) with which I find it difficult to quibble too much. I think they're pretty good takes.
