amazing render. It must be so cool to stand on one of those balconies and enjoy the view.

Love this design!

At first I thought that the curved edges wouldn't fit the context of the building's around it, but really it is still quasi - rectangular, even with curves. Since the floor plans are still square/rectangular, the theme of the building is really more like Aqua- a straight building with curved finishing.
The location in renders between other buildings in a linear arrangement reminds a little of the Waterview tower from the old days. Hopefully this will have a better fate.

Waterview Tower is so bland, this is way much better but we will have to wait until its completion for the final say.

Oh, you just reminded me something that makes me rather sad, the cancellation of such prominent Supertall and the much shorter glass-box that was built instead.

I agree, the spire would have been better.

I think it would be a great addition to the skyline. Can't wait to see this puppy rise!

Had not realized that this tower will be Chicago's second tallest by roof height!
