it seems the resemblance to the Sears Tower was intentional.

Quote:
Bookending Grant Park with the Aon Center, the 76-story residential tower with 1,115 square meters (12,000 square feet) of retail space at its base will enhance the grandeur of the park as the heart of Chicago’s Burnham plan. The building’s massing, made up of square structural bays of varying stacked heights, evokes its city’s famous Willis Tower, once the world’s tallest.

Thanks for the pictures! They look great.

Is there a construction cam on this one?

At first when I saw the renderings of this building I was not that impressed. It appeared "dated" something like a throwback from the '70's a sort of boxy rectangular look trying to resemble a vague Mies Van Der Rowe look. However, after seeing how it does make a bookend to the southern boundary of Grant Park and how it differs from the two more "sleek glass 21st century towers built directly to the east I know think it really could be a great inclusion to the skyline.

Just out of curiousity, was this the site that Frank Llyod Wright proposed his "mile high" tower he proposed?

They've worked fast on the rebar for the core. Looks like the mat pour is imminent.
