What's up with the positioning of the glass facade on the balconies, just don't seem right?

That's the way it's supposed to be. Look closely at the rendering:

Am I missing some finer point in the detailing or are there no operable windows?

Proper floor to ceiling glass is stunning ... but it seems odd not to be able to let a little air in. There's got to be something that I'm just not noticing.

There are no windows on the south or north faces of the building, I think because the balconies are inset and open into the living rooms and bedrooms. On the east and west sides, there are thin pieces of glass between some of the large panes that open up.

I still can't get over the transparency of this glass - I'm not sure if I've ever seen anything like it on a highrise.

Fire at project by noted Chicago architect

By Mary Owen
Tribune staff reporter
Published April 30, 2007, 2:30 PM CDT

Chicago firefighters responded this afternoon to a report of a blaze at a Helmut Jahn-designed condominium complex under construction in the Streeterville neighborhood just off North Michigan Avenue, fire officials said.

Firefighters were called to the building, 600 North Fairbanks Court, after a fire broke out at about 1 p.m. on the 18th floor of the building, said Kevin MacGregor, a spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department. No injuries were reported. The fire was put out by 1:35 p.m., MacGregor said.

600 North Fairbanks is being developed by Chicago-based Schatz Development and was designed by Jahn, an internationally-known architect based in Chicago.

One of the fire engines en route to the fire collided with a vehicle at Clybourn Avenue and Halsted Street on the North Side around 1:15 p.m., said Chicago Police Department spokeswoman Eve Rodriguez. She said one civilian from the vehicle was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition.

No firefighters were injured, she said. Circumstances of the crash were not immediately known.
