wow spyguy that is some crazy shite right there. I almost want them to build all those in one giant cluster away from downtown just to see that lol.

That would easily be the 2nd or 3rd best skyline by itself in North America if it was built like that. Kind of reminds of lower Manhatten how it looks (only taller!!!!!)

Thanks for showing the site plan. So, the hotel lobby is pushed back away from Michigan Ave. It makes room for future retailers to be fronted there.

I can see the reminiscence of Legacy, but I don't see the WV.

I wish we could see the other side where there is sort of a set back. Anyway, thanks for the new rendering.

Does anyone have news about how the process of receiving city zoning approval is going? Have they started the process or are they still getting all the paperwork together?

Yeah I've noticed a lot of towers (not just in Chicago) that look similar to this style... the Orion in NYC comes to mind, and the Marriott Center in Chongking.
