Congrats Chicago, outstanding project but looks a bit thin in some renderings.
Hope to see one day such projects in Warsaw

It may look small in some renderings because the tower after the setback is actually a right triange shape. If you catch it at the right angle, it could look very skinny, like the top picture above.

Since there is some controversy to whether this tower is very slim or not,
I used this nice tool (www.acme.com/planimeter), trying to sort things out.

To my understanding, the first photos were depicting just the central core, far from the actual size of the tower.

Now, the footprint seems to be around 2100sq.m - (~23.000 sq.ft)



This is not small at all, however the tower gets slimmer for the top part.
For comparison check:

Marina Towers:



Half Sears Tower
