So many of these buildings didn't exist just five years ago.

Sorry to be late to the party, go ahead and laugh, but what are the two low rise parts of this tower to the north and south? Are they apartments as well? Amenity floors? Or are they buisness/parking?

I think its hiding the parking garage. The concrete on the sides looks like the structure of a parking garage

A celebration of the automobile.

This one turned out nice. It’s also one of the less oppressive above ground podiums you’re gonna see

If every base could be this well hidden I don't even know if we'd complain that much about parking heavy podiums

So, this one turned out great. No question about it.

The only thing that tends to rub me the wrong way about it is I’ve always felt it would be better oriented with wider face along the N-S axis (I think that’s my take because there are a couple too many towers in the in the immediate vicinity oriented E-W). That was actually the original design, pre-formal proposal, as I recall someone from SCB describing in the media a few years back. As recounted, they re-oriented to not overwhelm and darken Michigan Ave. Meh. I didn’t quite buy into their concerns, and still don’t.

This is but a quibble I suppose.

Strong work.

This is kind of disappointing IMO, and I know it's not a great picture, but it appears that only the eastern side of the crown will be lit up.

A side note; I have much more positive feelings about One Museum Park and its tacky lighting when it caters to me specifically and lights up for Pride month.

Sneaky, and probably not very energy efficient, but it makes for a charming skyline addition ahead of schedule.

Don't be concerned. I've seen the full crown lit up a few times. Probably just fixing something

Yeah I distinctly remember seeing the crown lit from the TJ's parking lot, which would have been the north face. I'm sure the whole thing will light... with the diagonal bracing and the color of the glazing/color of the light, it reminds me a lot of 7WTC.
