Does anyone know if or when they're going to paint the rest of the windows black?

Thanks for the updates people!

It looks better than the renders. A nice addition to the Chicago skyline.

It will have a "hint" of French Chateau style on its roof as far as I understand. Everyone wants to live in "old aristocracy" places these days so that is why we see so many attempts to make a new building look old and classy.

Sure. It'll resemble classics like Pittsfield or Helmsley Building or the Blackstone Hotel.
The dormers and spires will be pretty interesting.





Btw, is there any bigger rendering?

Looks more modern in real life than in the render...

This is one of those buildings that actually looks better the less you know about architecture.
