I think that this project will end up looking better than the Trump building.

My kind of town

What an elegant tower! It soars gracefully with modern sleekness. Chicago is certainly a wonderland of highrise construction.

Why is this one getting so little attention?

It's going to be amazing.

People don't realize that this building is the fifth tallest currently under construction in Chicago: Spire, Trump, Waterview, Aqua, "Legacy", 300 N. Clark. At it's t/o height of 819'...this tower would be the tallest building in many US cities. In Chicago...it's over looked.
