I think the NY developers probably are just as concerned with their pocketbooks. It looks different in NY because it's a more competitive landscape.

This is one of those blue glass towers that manages to remain unique despite not bucking the trend. I love how it turned out

^Indeed it is. And depending on the angle, we kind of got two towers out of the deal.

According to the picture they have on their web site it looks like the might: http://theparagonchicago.com/wp-cont...2/building.jpg

Plus, they're calling themselves a "beacon of possibilities." How can they be a beacon without a giant fucking light at the top?

Don't worry, they'll add the de rigueur color-changing LED spot lights before you can say "ugh".

I find this thing to be very fine.

I don't even care about height when it gets to this glass and design quality.

Diamonds as 'arêtes' (Fr term for edges in geometry) are a subtle gem making up the building.

People on the spot will enjoy it, no doubt.

I hate to be greedy, but can anyone get a good shot of the base of this one from the street? This is like 90% great so far and I have held out hope the base is just as good.
