This one looks great. Awesome addition to the Chicago skyline.

9/4.

The facades on Legacy's base are cleaning up nicely.

Great entryway on this old facade:

It reminds me of the John Hancock tower in Boston. A well-proportioned exercise.

I love it and was not sure if I would like it much before it started. It perhaps is my favorite of the boom, maybe even more then Aqua.

The reverse case is with 300 N. LaSalle which I would had great anticipation about yet am somewhat disappointed by (not a bad building but not much above average either IMO).

I also think it is more aesthetically pleasing than Aqua. It looks more high-quality and slick. Aqua looks good from certain angles, but from some other angles it looks uncomfortable. The mechanic floor is also a disaster. I can't believe they didn't think of that during designing.
