O my... with the red sky, this looks like if the firestorms of the apocalypse cause the melting of the tower

But honestly - I like that special design that will bring another new aspect to the superb Chicago skyline. Sadly, in spite of having 251m some day, it will still stand a bit in the shadow of taller towers around then (aon, 2 pru, trump and of course chicago spire).

The giant hole is gone, can't even see the park now. Can't wait until the stairs are open.

They already started the wavy balconies? WOW! How are they doing that? They just pour straight cut floors and then add the wavy edges later? How are they coordinating the unique pattern for every floor?

Seems like they're pouring the unique sections - every floor has a different cast? If so, they probably alternate the patterns on sides every few floors to save money and time.

That is a real beauty. That wave-like design looks amazing, mut how can this tower be so "short"? It looks like a supertall to me. 83 floors is quite much. Those floors can't be very high then. Chicago will so be the best skyline -city on Earth. New York, good bye.
