That thing is freakin' crazy looking. I wonder how the hell they design something like that... let alone construct it... wow.

I love that building. It is so RANDOM! It look like that skyscraper just got burned from toaster even it is really not. Its so RAD! I can't wait to see how it will turn out!

I don't really know Chicago that well since I only been there once... I am curious where it will get built and will it impact Chicago skyline?

Nobody is talking about this one. I think its one of the best skyscrapers to be built. It may not be 2,000 tall..but it looks pretty slick.

Saw this thing this past weekend. Not much in terms of progress yet, but there is a LOT of activity; even on Saturday! I saw at least half a dozen cranes and a big line of trucks, so it's clear that they're serious about this thing.

Wasn't Marina City considered "out there" in the 1960's?

This is just another chapter in the innovative skyscraper design of Chicago.

I like it!
