The glass is very transparent. I think this will turn out well. Unfortunately my camera's battery gave out just as I was about to take a closer picture. It drained quickly in the cold. The second photo posted is a magnified view of the first.

The glass is really clear. From the renderings, I was expecting a slightly bluish tint to it. It looks great, though. Retro, nice work as always with these updates.

The glass does look very transparent right now. I wonder if it will appear a bit more opaque once an entire floor, let's say, is enclosed and there's less light on the backside. Gonna be a beauty regardless!

I really love this building; simple yet very elegant, nothing seems overdone about it.

You can't see the dent from that angle.

Are we still sure that we're getting a dent? I haven't been over in Streeterville for a while (at least not to the north of 600), but, from the construction shots above it certainly doesn't appear that the facade varies in plane at all on that back side.

I haven't been to Streeterville in a really long time, and I'd totally forgotten about this project. I open this thread to see a whole new skyscraper built. That's just Chicago for ya.
