this is the bad boy right - right in the middle of the shot with the crane on the roof? Almost pales into insignificance in the wider Chicago skyline. Bit of bulk, nothing too spectacular.

I know this pales in comparison to everything else in Chicago, but I like it. It's modern, but it has simple shapes to it. In most cases, I hate the weird glass spirals with random spikes and angles. This is what I like most: a slight differential of a classic rectangle. It may not stand out much where it's located, but it will surely add to the general atmosphere of the city.

Small crane that takes the bigger one down.

Once again, great pictures of this. Looks like all they've left to do is clad the last few floors and then work on the interior.
