There's no such thing is "too much tacky", there's tacky and too tacky.

This tower exudes Star Trek science fiction! It doesnt match Chicago for me. Maybe Miami or San Diego or Vancouver, more of a water-oriented city!

Yepper, Lake Michigan is a very large freshwater lake, about 450-500 km or so long north-south by about 180-200 or so km wide east west. And there are four other similarly large freshwater lakes connected to it. Its altitude is about 175m or so above mean sea level and is connected to the oceans by a series of canals and locks.

The Great Lakes of North America are amazing!

It's more and more beautiful everyday.
But you do really need to be just under it to fully enjoy the experience.

agree, can't believe how tall my boy's grown.

I can't ask for any more to the brilliant photos being posted but does anyone do 2D diagram of construction progress of AQUA building? What is the height now?

The mechanical floor really distorts the consitency of the waves. They really really should install a balcony on the mechanical floor at least.
