^Thank you. It's like some lame reference to 1985. (the Essex, I mean... sorry, wrong thread)

Nice photos as usual..

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 had reservations about the base of this building but in person the side flutes/wings are much lees imposing than they appear in photos from street level. I also like how the cladding comes all the way down to meet the sidewalk. Nice detail

Interesting building even with the blue glass. Turning out pretty good.

The tree on top of building gimmick continues, huh? I've never really bought into it tbh. I love a well landscaped roof for sure, but trees just seem forced

I think this turned out nice, but it is the slowest progressing project in the area. It started the same time as Essex roughly and on that project the crane is down, hoist is down, and hoist bay glass is installed. It will be nice to see these two and Essex opened to the public next year. Essex is expecting their first renters in march, anyone know when this one will open?

Great addition to the city! Looks good from all angles especially from the south west, it adds another layer to the south loop peak!

It really does, especially from the SW:

Michigan Ave was closed off for a bit last night while they removed the crane.
