Can't wait for Chicago to build such a charming skyscraper.
I agree. I like Sterns work. This will be a nice addition.

I don't know how to feel about this tower. I like the height but I feel like it's trying to look historic while leaving out a lot of design factors, like the top of it just looks so strange.

Yes for now. There's a similar tower top in NYC that goes for the step up look, very 1920's

Stern is one of the few that can do that properly. Just look at 15 Central Park West and 30 Park Place in New York City to see the results of his work of extremely similar style. One benefit of doing the same thing over and over is that you figure out how to do it properly.

That SSP thread is painful to read.

I wouldn't say so. He leaves out quite a few important aspects of classical design, including the right detailing and proportions. His works just look like 80s postmodernism, in my opinion.

What stuff from the 80s does Stern's work look like? It's a mistake to expect a copy of classical design, he designs buildings as though classical design kept evolving through modernism.

Key Tower and anything else done by Pelli, the NBC Building, and other similar ones I can't name from memory...all that's missing is a giant spire or pyramid on top

His buildings aren't ugly, but I think they could be way better

I don't know if it's a good thing or not when you recognize the architect by looking at the the design ( César Pelli much ). It doesn't look bad. Although I hope it will look as good in real life. It is the future tallest residential building of Chicago after all.

The setbacks are very 1930's. Post gothic, post Art Deco, the facade's very clean with no distinguishable artwork, but it works well for the tower.

A tower that tall should have a jaw dropping design, i find it boring not ugly though.

I like it... a lot actually. It will be quite prominent in that location, too.
