Looks cool! The base reminds me of some designs from the 1980s, which isn't a bad thing! It's nice to see some reminders of the past being built from time to time.

Yea, I'm pretty sure its 99% near sold. I wouldn't mind even just a small 5ft. woo space at the very bottom fronting the river in case there is ever a push to build a continuous river walk space at river level. I know that isn't likely to happen and maybe for good reason but would be nice to have the corridor there. Still a minor squabble that I don't want to see hold up this project.

IF this, Wolf Point, and River Point all get built within the next five years the western end of the Main branch of the river will be a wonderful sight to behold for this city.

LOVE THIS!!

I love Chicago's skyline but it seems to have been on put on the back burner compared to other N. American cities recently.

This is a GEM though

That base is brutal, but also very cool.

Reminds me of a recently completed building complex in Abu Dhabi (?) that won some sort of award this year

I am really interested to see how that angled glass cladding turns out. Could be spectacular.

ON POINT
A balancing act on the Chicago River.




Goettsch plants a tall tower with a slim footprint on the Chicago River.

Along with River Point to the north, the new project continues the Chicago riverwalk.

Quote:
At a meeting downtown to unveil their plans for Chicago’s latest riverfront skyscraper, architect Jim Goettsch and developer John O’Donnell confronted a public somewhat skeptical of the building’s unusual shape.
“It looks like a giant tuning fork,” said nearby resident John Middleton. Critic Lynn Becker compared it to a punch stamp. At 53 stories, the structure planned for 150 North Riverside Plaza is among the largest developments in Chicago since the recession. But the high rise’s slender footprint and ample green space make it seem delicate next to its bulkier neighbors.


“In some ways it may look counter-intuitive,” said Goettsch, “but it’s an extremely well-designed structure.” With Magnusson Klemencic Associates and Thornton Tomasetti doing peer review, there’s little doubt about its solidity. In fact, Goettsch said during another interview that the concrete-steel composite is fairly conventional.


The form recalls Goettsch’s Sowwah Square, a complex in Abu Dhabi that took home the Council on Tall Buildings’ and Urban Habitat’s 2013 Best Tall Building Award for the Middle East & Africa region. With Sowwah, the clients asked for “iconic” design, said Goettsch, but not a super-tall structure. The end result is a series of towers that appear to have been lifted 10 stories off the ground, opening up to a shared plaza.

The building would look better without the thin bottom but even with it, it isn't bad
