I don't think the renderings from different angles are compatible. For example, the following pics are from the southeast and northeast. The top of the building stays consistently thin along the east/west axis of the structure. However, the rendering from the west is totally conflicting with this. There are also other inconsistencies as well but I thought this was the most compelling.

^ there are no inconsistencies, the building is wedge shaped in plan with the narrow edge of the wedge facing grant park.

To help visualize this, imagine the line created by the recessed balconies on the narrow side facing Grant Park going straight back. Now the roof is split into two. Now looking at the picture of the "back" of the building, you'll note how its wedge-shaped. The taller roof portion is then sort of like a right triangle with the "base" towards the Loop and the opposite angle towards Grant Park. Do you see it now. The renderings don't contradict themselves, but the interesting design sure makes them confusing!

I see how it can be wedge shaped but to me, the second pic I posted shows virtually no indication of this. I suppose it is similar to Waterview in the respect that it is wedge shaped but looks incredibley thin from some angles. In any event, this makes me like Legacy even more.

Terrific pictures. That is cool, I wondered how they would get those walls to stand. That looks so fragile. They better not **** up and knock shit down accidentally.

That actually happened in a San Antonio "behind the facade" reconstruction about 3 years ago -- although I'm not too sure how "accidental" it really was since they were fighting with preservationists about the project anyway.

I am really excited over this building, if nothing else, because of how it will enhance the already amazing views from Millennium Park.
