It actually looks a bit like Boston's Hancock Tower in the 2nd photo

I'm beginning to think this and 300 N. Lasalle are Chicago's best skyscrapers of the last decade.

^ Depends on which one you're talking about. Prudential one isn't exactly an eyesore but definitely isn't anything special. But Two Prudential is just plain sexy.

I think for such a prominent location in the Chicago skyline that mediocre buildings such as One Prudential Plaza and Mid-Continental Plaza become eyesores. This is especially true when they are juxtaposed with some very beautiful buildings. I would love to see One Prudential Plaza torn down and replaced more than any other building in the world due to its large impact on the skyline. The same goes for Mid-Continential Plaza unless they can continue renovating the entire building and finish the facade.
