What a handsome tower! This is one of my favorites! I think it has a strong, virile, masculine identity.

Macho skyscraper

As I like to say, if this building was a person, it would have a hairy chest!

You really get a sense of how tall 300 N. LaSalle and Trump are from the Sears Tower.

Mwell...
I think the cladding is a disappointement. If you compare it to the early renders it's just not quite there, is it?

As of right now it doesn't, but one of the things that makes this building look unique is it top portion, without it, it's almost another box. I think once the building is topped out and the cladding reaches the roof, everything will come together or fall apart. Still to early to judge I say.
