I walked by the site on Friday evening, I didn't get a good glance though. I walked across the east side of LSD, but could see the site from a distance.

I love chicago..first time there, I hope to go back sometime.

The facade looks wonderful, it will certainly make the entire building looks stunning! Great job on finding this site where the testing was being done. Secrets like that are what make this forum so interesting.

Looks very nice and elegant. And its going to look even better in a 610-meter-tall facade.

The Facade looks Beautiful! Very Sexy and Futuristic. This tower sure has some style. However, some parts do look a bit plastic like. Maybe its just the lighting or something. I'm it will look better than this though. Calatrava never gets anything wrong.

I LOVE the look of the facade, but I'm not so sure about the tan color panels.
