If it's cute, the Japanese will like it.

Let's call it Hello Kitty Plaza.

Hi guys,

I was walking up Dearborn today. What is the building that is already 20 or 30 stories constructed due north between Kenzie and Hubbard on Dearborn? It looks like poured-in-place concrete cladded with precast and I'm not too impressed. Is it part of the 353 North Clark developement?

^Yes, kind of. Same developer and part of the larger River North Center. It will be a hotel tower, and the plot to the west of it will have a residential tower.

It's another box but I like it.I'm not so sure about that white thing on the top...it seems it will ruin the building a bit.

I agree, I can't help but love this building, it's so...clean and perfect, it makes me feel all warm inside.

It's big, glassy and boxy, but it's big, glassy and boxy in a good way.

It is very similar to the buildings around it in style and height, but the cladding and the light-blue window tint give it a modern flare.

I dont understand.

Why this one is U/C while the Chicago Spire is not, when both seems to be in the same stage of construction.

This building is much more advanced than Chicago Spire. In fact, I believe all of the caissons for this one's foundation have been poured. With respect to CS, by contrast, no foundational caissons have yet been drilled. The drilling of caissons is the event that triggers a project being moved to the u/c stage.

This is a refinement design!!!

This is pure quality architecture: classical, taste, luxury end nevertheless sober.

Good taste in the good choise of proportion, glass end to rounding the corners at the top of the building is just great!
