Yea, it's making very fast progress and yet, it is only a little over half way to its final proposed height. This will be a nice addition to Chicago's World-class skyline.

Enjoy

PS: Wanted to make it a lil shorter but to fit all your great pictures in it had to be this long.

I love this fantastic building . But what about in winter , will there hang ice -spires down from the balconies and probably drop down ?
