Awesome.. I can't wait until this one's finished. Only in a place like Chicago could a building of this size be considered almost 'secondary.' I mean, imagine if they built this in London?!! You wouldn't here the end of it.

I tell you, Chicago's skyline is going to be superb in 5 years time, (as if it wasn't already.) In lieu of sufficient superlatives... Chicago is f*cking brilliant.

thats quite a plan there. i watched the video for waterview. most of the floors are "blank space" theres not going to be anything on some of the floors because of poor views. he said something like the views dont come til floor 28. thats different, in my eyes. never heard of that. they usualy use the floor for something.

Can't they use that space for parking or offices?

wow those are some thick concrete pillars. This will be exceptionally stable. I guess it has to be because the building is so skinny! I wonder are there any mass dampers going to be installed here??
