Are those W truss beams painted, or is that some kind of cladding already?

The Essex Hotel 2?

That base looks a little similar.

great photos, the last one makes me sad a bit. Almost every other building in view put a significantly more effort and thoughtfulness into its design than this non-descript box that looks like it could be sprouting up in any city like Austin, Nashville, Seattle, even LA

Tenants prefer a strong corner presence?

One can only imagine if they owned 1 more property to the north what this could have been. They still had room to shift this a little more that way though.

I assume they are balancing "respect for C&C" with the desire to capture river canyon views above Motor Club and Hilton Garden Inn. If they pushed the tower too far north, the river views would get blocked by Executive House (Royal Sonesta now).

Personally I would have oriented the tower on an N-S axis and pushed it to the west part of the site - that gives a big terrace overlooking Michigan Avenue for amenity deck or a posh rooftop bar, aligns more units toward the western view over the river canyon, and reduced energy consumption (largest energy losses come from south-facing facades). Basically like Joffrey Tower. But the building would make less of a "bold statement" from the street.

I love that Chicago landscaping. It really makes the city stand out against others.

this will wind up being just two feet shorter than Mather Tower to left, so should plug a little gap in this section of the skyline

I would say there were several factors that landed the tower where it is. Aside from views from the south corner units, if the tower was closer than 20' from the north property line it wouldn't have been able to be nearly as glassy by code for the required fire ratings. Then constructing the tower right in the middle of it's podium probably didn't yield a very efficient layout of very effective outdoor space either.

^ ^^ ^^^ It's caught a lot of flak for its Carbide and Carbon cover-up, but partial obstruction of the dreadful, soul-eating Park Millennium condo tower from the west is definitely one to add to the pro's column for 300 NMA's view corridor impact.
