I really like the design of this tower it has some nice details to it. The fact that it is skinny in one direction makes it "look" a lot taller.

Love the look of this tower, and I did not think it would be so close to Marina City! God I love Chicago....

I agree that there's nothing wrong with a well done box. However, this one doesn't really strike me as being boxy at all.

I love this tower! I did not know about the 29th floor setback with a garden, which is really cool. I think more skyscrapers could use this.
