For a building of this size, the footprint is quite small. Im not sure why this seems to be a bad thing though.

Does anyone know the footprint of 2Pru? I imagine that 2Pru couldnt be that much larger.

This may be a stupid question, but is this the so called "top down" method of building that I read about on the Russia Tower thread?

What an interesting design. I cannot decide whether I like it or not. It looks a little lop sided.

I walked by this construction a couple days ago, it looks basically identical to how it was a couple weeks ago. But it's going to be gorgeous, based on the new rendering.

This kinda reminds me of Hong Kong's One Island East were we have a "supertall" in a big city that's not really in the spotlight like ICC, Trump Tower Chicago, Burj Dubai or SWFC. Maybe that's just me but I keep forgetting Waterview and One Island East in HK are being built.

there you can see that a 300m tower isn't really special nowadays.

Great Scott

Man Chicago has an awsome skyline. Not many cities can boost have so many 1000 footers. With the Trump coming along with this Waterview the density seems endless at street view. Watch out NY, Chicago is gaining.
