It looks nice, but I expected more.

Prefer to see it in the night

In render Aqua looks better, then real building. But i think its one of the most beautiful project in Chikago.

Request for pics. of base/podium

I love this tower!!! It's quite something and the effect was so successful, IMO.

I have looked back through this thread all the way to August, however, and out of all the pictures of the tower, there are none of the base.

Can someone post some pics. of the base? I saw it only in a rendering and I am very curious to see real life pictures of it.

Thanks so much!

The base looks like it's inspired by sea life-- like a stingray or something. I like the fact that it makes a statement- it's quite interesting. It does look rather oppressive to the pedestrian though.
