The glass is what really makes this tower special.

For a moment, I thought this is strikingly similar to the Chicago waterfront, with Greenland Plaza looking like Sears Tower (because the details of the cladding is not clear) while the big box tower on the right looking like Aon Center. It just needs a John Hancock Center shaped tower on the far right to make it even more similar.

The cladding/glass of this building almost looks reptilian. Just stunning!

I love its location, and how the design was changed to the cornice.
