Nice. The type of building that never loses its grace. I like that slim design.

Well, it's still going to be quite tall. But compared to the spire it looks kind of small

Thanks Culwalla for the diagram.

After being here 6 years, I can see how much Aon, Hancock and Sears really stand out from the rest of the bunch.

I LOVE how Spire (now approved and apparently ready for construction within weeks), Trump and Waterview are all three on par or greater than the original 3. It's like the supertallness of this city is going to suddenly DOUBLE after a 30-35 year pause!!!

chicago's skyline is ever evolving in chicago's own unique way. i can't say as to whether or not Chicago has the best skyline in the world but i do know that Chicago can stand the test of time against any other city in the world when it comes to skyscraper construction and the ever lasting results of such grand visions that Chicago allows to come to fruition.

i think the whole world wonders if chicago is feeding their extremely old buildings viagra so that they can stay erect. they are all so flawlessly upkept (from a distance, anyway) and in clusters so they complement each other nicely. chicago's skyline doesn't have many garbage buildings...quality throughout.
