I love the way that someone's graffitied "Pride is back" on the base of the tower in that last photo.
Great pics hydrogen.

The greenery really doesn't appear to be all that well organized. Seems like they pretty much plopped a bush or tree wherever there was room. Maybe, it will turn out better once it completed.

Not really. It's always difficult to judge at this stage. Let the vegetation mature first.

the haphazard pattern has a much more natural, wild feel to it as you walk by it, rather than a meticulous manicured landscape. Thats my impression so far.

Some pics from my recent trip to Chicago (29th May- 5th June).
I know they can't compete with most of the previous one but hope someone will enjoy them

From Millenium park

Haven't checked this thread for months... it's lighting at night is excellent and it's blessed with slender, uncompromised proprtions. Thanks to all the Chicago forumers who are giving us these excellent photos.

It's really changed the area for the better! I remember the old Sun-Times building and it was a little dull for that kind of location.

Are their any plans for lighting on this tower? It looks pretty dull at night.
