I wish the Blue Sheild building wasn't being made larger....it looks too bulky and takes away from the new tower rising next to it.

But this is a fantastic development.

Oh yea, LSE's mega projects if all go thru, going to be one of the most cocentrated supertall residential block on earth! Nice updates btw spyguy!

The Roosevelt Metra station is truly an embarrassment.

It's great new addition to the skyline. I like the older buildings too thought, they are timeless and have great height. Go Chicago!

From what I can recall reading I think their has been plans to secure funding for over a decade to build a new Roosevelt station. I want to say I remember reading that I think funding for the station got delayed again recently but I may be wrong.

Oh, thanks nomarandlee for the info, just thought that the wood frame bridge over Roosvelt station is way out of date on that shot!

Here is another update for LSE, taken couple days ago! It is looking massive that LSE! Image Aqua will soon filling up the gap betwwen North OTp340 and West Chandler!
