I know this is going to sound ridiculous but I thought it would look taller than that. Perhaps its just because they are preliminary renderings but I was underwhelmed by its effect on the skyline. Stunning building though...just stunning
Underwhelmed? To me it does the exact opposite. This is going to do to Chicago what the CN Tower did to Toronto. It will make the rest of the skyline seem shorter than it really is. Especially with it located right on the waterfront and not further back behind the skyline or mixed in with it.
I'm actually not a fan of this tower. Chicago is full of great architecture and this mediocre design will take away from the rest of the skyline due to it's height. This building would be better at half the height.
