If I'm right it's about 2-4 floors to the setback.

Is there something missing?... Ah, in the center of the pic Waterview Tower has become a "Searsview Tower", too!

When finished, the top might peak Lake Michigan, blocking half of the view to Park Tower on this view, I guess.

You can also see the tip of the crane from 353 N Clark peeking out from behind Quaker Oats (ABA). Directly between WaterView and Hancock.

Yeah.. It IS boxy but still pretty darn good...
Chicago's boxyness doesn't disturb me the slightest cos it only reenforces the impact of its spikes spires and antenas.

I like boxiness, it makes for good fillers and density, and i for one like dense cities. Sometimes boxy buildings make it look cleaner and more stylisticly pure than having a million different styles working against each other, so to say.

Never trust Wikipedia. It is not fact website. It is created by communities that can change the stories/references. It can give you wrong information. Just want to let you know.
