For being so tall, it really just "fits in" there nicely. It really doesn't garner attention anywhere near the likes of Hancock or Sears.

I like it, it's almost as if it's always been there. It looks so skinny from a distance.

Amazing photos in here! I can't wait to come to Chicago this summer to see this building for myself!

The construction elevator has started to come down. I noticed yesterday that it no longer extends up to the top, but perhaps only 2/3rds of the building. I can't wait to get some "clean" shots of the building now!

kamin didn't like the spire, but I can't help but feel that the building would be terribly squat without it. Its extra bit of verticality does add a lot, I feel.
