Spire - just like an antenna but doesn't do anything other than make the building look good.

Yup, sorry for the mistake. But, why are the works for the spire stopped?

With those corinthian columns, I'd have to say neo-classical.

This currently my favorite building in the U.S. It is just amazing with the height, the curves, the different layers...beautiful building. Good to see it almost complete as well.

To bad it has such an un-original name.

This photo might be a bit old. I can't see the spire.

Yes, it can be. Thank you for your answer.


Anyway, Chicago looks great and the architecture there has a very high level. Chicago, NYC and SF are the most beautiful cities in the USA.

Saw on the World Weather segment of the TV News that it is getting pretty cool over there......does construction keep going during winter months ? I think if this kind of weather happenned here in Australia the place would just shut down....everything ? Guess they clad facades as soon as possible so interior work can proceed......

Construction continues throughout the winter - concrete pours included.

btw: the building in the left looks like the other original buildings in U.S. (from 60's or 70's). I think...
