This is the most exciting concrete residential building under construction in the region, as it grows, it looks more fantastic! The building appears to be in constant motion.

The base is very large indeed… but there are reasons for this – a large grocery store and parking will occupy the base, along the back of the building is the triple-stacked roadway of the east Loop, the park in the front is at actual ground level. The perimeter of the park is in the process of being filled in with townhouses and more retail, so the base will essentially 'blend in'.

Harry C, are you insane or just crazy? Riding your bike in Chicago with snow on the roads is like skating on thin ice, like dodging bullet trains in mud, like playing in a lion's cage wearing a steak-suit... be careful out there!

Awesome process! Can anyone imagine if this tower has many icicles on the balconys? When weather warm up, they drops all the way to streets. Scary!

Are you sure its snow on the ceiling on the top floors? I think they're just covers.
