The glass is gorgeous. A lot of new buildings are getting an 'emerald city' look these days. This is really elegant for a building in chicago

This building reminds me of our beloved towers at Canary Wharf, London very boxy but also very tall

Thanks Harryc for your pics! The core has been reconfigurated... Maybe the building is about to get the 40th floor?

apologies, have ploughed through a few pages, but can't see anything on occupants or pre-lets? Anything sorted, or tenants lined up yet? As Mikey mentioned it does look remarkably similar to the Bank Street towers in Canary Wharf (albeit another 100ms higher).

As you can see in this image, the core has shrunk in size and you might also notice the spray-painted number of 569'. We have about 225' more to go.

Looks great! Will surely be shiny due to the mix use of glass and metal for the facade :-)

Nice update Jibba. Like the other skyscrapers going up in Chicago this fits in perfectly. All the lines on this building makes it very elegant.
