I love this building. Can't wait to see it finished.
And i think it will do great in Chicagos skyline.

And i hope to see it with my own eyes when its finished and not only on photos.

The white floorplates really make a difference. It's a beauty !
But why some are painted while others are not ? Is it testing ?

Beautiful already, this is one building which due to its special design will be particularly interesting to keep an eye on.

is it just an illusion, or does it actually get wider toward the top?

It's an illusion created by the perspective of the rendering.

It's the blue flashy glass that makes this Tower looks like a huge water cube with all the waves emerging from it , very cool

Looking better everyday. Thanks for the pics everyone.
I can't believe how much taller it's going to be; maybe we'll still be able to see it poking out from behind the BCBS expansion.

Is there any documentary video on this building? Cos I still don't understand how formwork works to shape floors. I don't understand how edges of the balconies aren't identically shaped if the formwork is same every floor.

is the floor without the wave balcony effect a mech floor? it kinda ruins the whole wave thing. None the less it is still a fantastic piece of architecture!

What will be inside the podium/base of the tower? Retail? Amenities?

It's a very interesting project, a very nice tower!!!
