^^^ Shame those V braces are such a blah color. As the only ornamentation on an otherwise featureless stump, a bolder color would have done a lot to give it some personality.

I usually prefer a more conservative appearance, but having those v braces in ferrari red would have looked pretty cool.

They should just have a more metallic, shiny cladding. And the corner one should line up properly. That bothers me.

^ Nice filler ...but would of been great to have one these recent developments in past 8 years in this corridor to break the 700ft range to add to some height variety...is there one more lot possible here still for something to be built?

this is the worst kind of filler... it takes away from the built environment with its blasé curtain wall, mediocre height, and thoughtless positioning (blocking a historic view of the C&C building)

The blocked sightlines of the C&C building are really my only gripe with 300 N Michigan. Its a fine tower otherwise. Nothing amazing about it, but nothing absolutely awful either. Something taller would have been nice, but 500+ feet is still pretty ample height.

The "M&M" columns are a novel detail, but the rest of this tower is flat, boring and unsophisticated even by Nashville standards. Michigan Avenue deserves much better.

God is in the details, my boy. Even "glass boxes" like Wolf Point East, 369 Grand, One Chicago, 448 LaSalle, etc. manage to create patterns and a sense of depth.
This just sucks. I rarely say this, but I wish this tower was shorter.

Apples to oranges in your comparison. There is a HUGE difference between the exterior curtainwall design on this box and the examples that r18tdi mentioned.

The facade looks more like a hotel on the side of the highway near O'Hare than a modern contender for Michigan Freakin Avenue. If developers don't have the money to put up something deserving of this city, they should let someone who does.

It has some horizontal white lines on 3 sides at least . Hard to see in these foggy pictures. Could definitely be better, could be worse, I guess.

Did you see what was there before this was built? Huge improvement!
