very very nice pics, and a great project!! I like buildings with a skinn of glass, but this is also really nice!
wy the crane have a lot of connections with the building? I thought it was normal to have connections with 60 or 70 meters between?
its ok like this, he will stand very strong now!!

The Elysian is a great addition to the northern Chicago skyline, following the style of 900 North Michigan, Park Tower, the Fordham and the Pinnacle.

Btw. why is it put here among the "Highrises"? I'd say that the 686ft = 209m of the thread title are correct, compared with the neighboring towers... so The Elysian could be promoted to the "Skyscrapers" category

The world needs more architecture like this. Enough of the glass prisms and "tall just for tall's sake". I love this, and hope it a speedy completion.
