There's another one in Chicago, the AMA Building by Kenzo Tange.

Interesting building... It would look better without a tiny hole. Thanks for sharing!

340 OTP, the building half-way built in front of Aqua, is T/O and almost double the height shown in this shot:

This is a very cool illustration, however, misses some buildings that are also expected to be completed by or around 2010.

For list of buildings in Chicago that are currently under development and approved ones to begin construction, here is a useful link to look at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ngs_in_Chicago

According to that link, there are about 15 new buildings to be completed will be new additions to beautiful skyline of Chicago.

That list is wrong. There are 60 highrises currently under construction with 12 more in site prep/demo stage. Two (three if you include CSpire, which will be u/c any day now) are over 1,000 ft. Five are over 700 ft. Three are over 600 ft. And three are over 500 ft.

Thanks for further information. I always felt that number was a lot more than 15 also, just strolling around downtown Chicago and looking around the number of visible cranes give instant impression that it cannot be 10-15 new buildings only. Having said that I would not guess that to be around 60. Wow! Is there a comprehensive and up to date source to glance this occasionally? Thanks again.
