Doesn't really look like a chicago building. More of a GC or miami design.

I was wondering what you guys thought about this. Do you think Aqua will be visible from this view? If so, could someone attempt to render the building in this photo? thanks very much.

I am just sic of all of this cHicago constuction going on right now.

It is not fair to the rest of the country or even the world.

Why can not you guys even share one measily 100 story tower with the world or give up a couple of 5 star hotels U/C to feed the masses?

cHicago folk must be greedy.
