Yeah, Kowloon Landmark Tower is amazing, but didn't get approved. Instead they're building Union Square Phase 7.

There's a lot of beauties by SOM. Shame that 7 South Dearborn is dead and they didn't recycle the Kowloon MTR tower for some other site.

I'm working on a documentary, I was wondering if people could post any information and pictures they have of 7South Dearborn? That would be a big help! Thanks

It looks like they are having a change of style, less of post modern and more of international(form)

I actually find 7SD's spire very graceful and elegant and 7SD would of been a better addition to Chicago's skyline than Fordham Spire.
