What a difference a few decades makes. Marina City were one of the taller buildings in Chicago upon its completion.

The work and engineering that went into those twin towers were way ahead of their time.

Look how easily TT towers over them. This is in no way a slight to the marvel that is MC, just a note.

It looks really nice, i really thought quite the opposite when i say the concept renders. I think it fits well into Chicago, and would equally so into NYC. Classy and calm.

Thanks hydrogen. It is good enough to become my background. I don't want to jinx you, but I think you have a winner on your hands for the UPC. It is doing very well.
