chicago's weather next week will be similar to london's weather now, except slightly chillier. however, most of the week looks warm and sunny (for chicago so roughly 13 degrees C/56 degrees F).

the average for this time of year is roughly 58-59 degrees Fahrenheit but lately it has been below average so the warmer weather is bound to hit us sooner than later.

It has always been 415 meters. There used to be 2 figures for the height I believe. One was height to roof, one was height to spire. 415 is to the spire.

Look at the contrast between the Old buildings and the new. Speaks volumes about how our aspirations change overtime and look at the love that went into the two buildings in the foreground.

I'm still loving seeing this tower go up. It's going to be amazing.

Thanks. It wasn't by accident that Mather Tower (left) and The Guaranty Building (lower right) were included in the shot.
