Everything seems perfect but design.

The design is not very bad actually, besides might be one of the best looking tower if it's being built anywhere outside Chicago, where thousands of similar looking tower crowding in the skyline.

He's known as Loewenberg for a reason

Anyway, the 80 story Gang tower should be something spectacular and will offset some of these filler towers.

Since this seems to be everyone's favorite tower, here are some updates on 340OTP (from www.340owners.com, great resource):





As you can see, glass if being added to the 2nd floor. Looking at the forums, one of the construction managers has posted that they will soon try a three day cycle for pouring one floor.

Good news from our favorite user:

When she said that it was wierd, I got pretty excited I don't know when the rendering will be released, but I will continue to work on it. I can't get it until the developers officially release it.
^That is the proposed 80 story tower.
