Great as a filler That's the neohistorist architecture we should go for, instead of the whole bland international style glassbox crap.

I can't get past the puke yellow color, so not even going to bother looking at the actual architecture.

Ever seen yellow puke?



Anyway, I'd like to see some update. Anyone who has some fresh shots to share?

I'm a parent, hence I've seen every color and consistency of puke you can think of. (not like anyone actually wanted to know that...)

Not much to say about this one anymore. At least the first few floors aren't completely awful.

I don't know what's the problem, I like it. Atleast its much better than seeing a bunch of glass boxes being put up....

It also looks a little too much like the Elysian...

No, it actually turned out better than the Elysian. Well, it's both designed by Lucien Lagrange.

Looks more decent than the Elysian, that had high potential, but now looks pretty f*cked up with its unfinished(?) roof and missing details. Give 10EastDelaware some time and it integrates really well into Chicago's historical highrise cityscape.

Love the beige. Wish I could live in beige, dress in beige, drive a beige car, and even hire a personal chef to serve me beige food. I live a boring, uninspiring life and I'm perfectly content with everything beige. They want to paint the sears tower silver, I say paint it beige. The CNA building- why the shit is it not beige? The Hancock is a marvel, but would become utterly legendary draped in beige. What the hell is going to become of my painfully mediocre life without Lucien Lagrange giving me something to live for? I'm doomed.

I love the massing that both Walton on the Park and Ten East Delaware has given in this photo. Where was that taken?

And btw, I'm assuming on Ten East Delaware there will be no ground level retail, but on the walton on the park there will be correct?
