For real right, when the other proposals are build the South loop will be able to stand alone as one of the top skylines in the country, all by itself. Oh and of course.. .DA BEARS!

I want to know why the eastern half of this tower is slightly taller. Is it the penthouse floor? Mechanical? The tiny bump will (I think) make it look slightly less visually intriguing than it is right now. It should have been either a flat roof or a considerably taller eastern half.

This tower is going to look great when finished, but I think they should have lowered the western half and stretched the eastern portion. But that's just me.

^ That's always how the building was designed. It's had the step-down from the original renders.

Oh, I'm aware, I've been following this since it was announced. But I still wish, and your screen name might suggest that you'd agree with me, that they had built the eastern half taller. It just looks ... odd.

Yes, I do wish it was taller. Called out!

The top of the Eastern half is an amenity floor, including gym. Above that is a mechanical penthouse.

Man some of those corner windows are gonna have a real 'Luxor Hotel' effect from inside...

The tower looks good but I dont like what I'm seeing as far as how the building meets the street. The symetrical base is weird. I'll hold out judgement until its finished - will have a good close up view walking to Soldier Field this Sunday...

I think this one has done a better job of minimizing the visual heft of the parking podium than others (*cough* One South Halsted). The garage doesn't seem to be the main thing that meets that street. I agree that waiting to see how it turns out is the best approach.

This tower is turning into a real unsung hero of this building cycle. Both it and Essex are high on my list.

Yeah, it's slightly awkward, I'll have to agree... That being said, it's has grown on me the more I've seen it in person and in real pictures as compared to the renderings, so I imagine the same will be the case for the weird crown.

I don't think the crown looks bad at all, i like the variation, looks much better than the top of Essex. THAT is a bad crown.
