This building is setting the bar really high in Chicago. I still think given the building's location, views and amenities, it is a great investment. I'm not even factoring in the fact that some may think it is architectural masterpiece and landmark building.

It might just be his actual opinion. I don't really see anything wrong with it, it'd be different if he also said the building's footprint is too small because of the hole!

^He thinks it ruins it, we think it enhances it. There's no problem with having a different outlook than the majority. I think that whole Russian comment might be a little out of line though.

And AMAZING updates! The coverage really makes watching the progress so much more interesting.

I wasn't joking. It is really my honest idea. This tower does not suit to Chicago skyline. Something like freedom tower ot SWFC will be much more suitable. This is like the tower in Shanghai. It does not suit to rest of the skyline. Like a spoiled tall child in a group picture trying to get all attention.
