Well that demolition was fast. Is this going to be a steel-structure w/ concrete core or is it going to be concrete all around? I would assume steel, b/c its an office building, but I wanted to make sure.

I will be so glad when the Franklin corridor finally fills in a bit. It's the part of the Loop that bothers me most!

I'm not sure if anyone posted this rendering from the official website. It gives a nice perspective on how this building will fit in:

it'll fit in all right, all the way to not even being noticeable.

i wish some ballsy office developer would break N/S wacker out of its 50 story doldrums.

slightly off-topic, but from the angle of that picture, waterview is going to look fantastic in the skyline

. ..and the fact that all the development has been on the east side of wacker. . .Sears Tower blocks out most of these buildings in the skyline when viewed from the south.

I like it. It reminds me of those old 50s photos of 6th Avenue that you see, with monolithic modernist office towers for blocks on end.

The relative uniformity in height along Wacker 1) conveys a sense of corporate power and 2) is immediately offset by the extreme height of Sears Tower.

I really love the grandiose lobbies of office towers. You never get that with residential, except for perhaps the Spire
