Since, that is all that it is, I think it would look better without the ring.

I agree...the silhouette, totally. Take out all the detail, 3d, and just have a black silhouette, and you have the hancock, but taller - slightly tapers as it gets taller very similarly to the hancock, and has a long single spire in the middle

I saw a comedy show commercial just last night, conan obrien, with a cartoon/rough drawing of a skyline silouette for the stage background. The tallest building in the drawing made me think it was the nyc skyline automatically..BUT, it was actually chicago when announced in text at the very end of commercial (dunno why the drawing didn't include the sears)...totally looks like the hancock.

The ring will eventually be filled with equipment and look solid.

I think you might have been told this before... but, oh well, here we go: you have a very bad sense of attractiveness.

I think it might be (or, at least Westfield wants one)... I can see the genius logos on the walls as well as the notorious white walls with light wood tables.

This thread is truly painful to read sometimes.

More pictures and less prattle, for the love of God.

Its the same if you look through other threads as well. A lot of time wasting and not many pictures or even relevant comments.

its looking nice WTC, a nice modern change to the skyline
