Hi, I've been following the thread for a while as this tower has always looked like a great super tall. I don't have anything significant to contribute other than to say that now it's going up it looks 110% amazing! Well done to the architects, the engineers, the construction workers and the city of Chicago.

It's looking like a great, great building. The design and the cladding is the best and I just wanted to big up the people involved in it. I will continue to watch the thread as the tower goes up and up. Shame we don't have this kind of construction project in the UK, because the whole design and the way it changes shape from different angles is inspired.

^Well some of thoe most exciting stuff in the UK has yet to be finished, so we will see. This building, however, was meant to be very contextual.

Not from today, but sort of interesting.
