You can easily see downtown Chicago from Evanston. The two cities share a common border (at Howard Av).

Drastic!

The view will definately be improved. My Philosophy: the more tall buildings, the better! At least if it's in Chicago or New York.

Beautiful closeups. This building really is a stunner.

Oh, by the way, in the photo from Evanston, is it the one about center with the tower cranes?

i take back what i said earlier about this tower. this is a really nice building, especially after you compare it to the Spire. Wow, I hate the Spire.

You're right, the CS design isn't nearly as nice as this building. The CS is ******* fantastic!

wow, those are great photos.. especially that last one. I think it offers a view most people don't usually see. Thats from Chestnut correct? I don't think there is another "Broadway" look like that in Chicago.
