What a banal building - looks like we are back to the bad old 60's again.
What a pathetic architect, you would think the developers could have got someone more talented, there are plenty of really good designers in the U.S.

But you have to remember this is prime real estate right on the lake, the goal is to get as many apartments as possible into a certain height and maintain the balance it has now. Just like Park Avenue in NYC as well as fifth along central park are the most expensive places to live in the city, but all the apartments are box buildings.

From today's Chicago Architecture Blog:

Streeterville Skyscraper Stalled by Green Screen

Quote:
42nd Ward alderman Brendan Reilly had the 45-story project called 500 Lake Shore Drive (actually at 516 North Lake Shore Drive) pulled from the agenda of today’s Chicago Plan Commission meeting because of concerns over how the building’s lower facade looks.

Apparently, the Chicago Plan Commission does not.
I also think the cladding of the tower looks better than its base.

I don't love or hate this new proposal. I'll accept it only because Chicago is really lacking with new construction projects. I'm very saddened at the lack of new developments these past few years here..
