All of these buildings are great! But I'm worried because the biggest booms come before the biggest busts! Look at New York 1925 versus New York 1935. :-\

Another rendering of the two


I love how they joined the bases together. This pair of towers is a great way to cap the bottom portion of Grant Park. And just remember, there are rumors that one or two more towers could be 800-900 ft

It's A LOT slimmer than I thought, well..maybe only from this angle but still stunner anyway.

The joining part looks realy great especially with that canopy.

I like the shorter one a little more though, the crown the color and the shape.

Two gorgeous buildings. I almost soiled myself when I saw that rendering. And I agree with you, Chad, I like OMP West just a little more.

I liked OMP better when the setbacks on the side were lower. Now they almost go to the top.

And in another 6 months, OMP's construction will be even more visible and very likely that one to three new towers will be under construction.
