A good old classical building!!!

This is just amazing in a world of globalisation end modern glass skycrapers everywhere, this is just back to where architecture belongs, to the good taste!!!

The style is just great, very good proportioned with reliëf variations.

Fantastic tower! It's sleek and slim, kinda modern and retro at the same time. That's how a good classical highrise/scraper should look like. I wish they'd build somethin like this up here in Germany

Less-hideous balconies? I'm all for it.

Beautiful or not, a building like this has excellent sense of scale, especially at street level. I abhor sculptural buildings surrounded by bleak plazas that have no respect for street life.

Are there any new construction pics of this risin' beauty? Or maybe a more precise rendering, that shows the facade in a better light? Cordial thanks in advance.

Here's the official homepage of the Elysian Hotel - it doesn't show that much new, but it offers something about the condos and the Hotel itself (floor plans, the view etc.), so perhaps it's worth a visit

Chicago Chef Charlie Trotter to Open New Restaurant

By ASHLEY M. HEHER
AP Business Writer
Published November 29, 2006, 11:55 AM CST

CHICAGO -- Charlie Trotter, an iconic chef whose name is synonymous with Chicago's gourmet cuisine, wants to dish out a second helping of his five-star meals.

Trotter, a Chicago native whose self-titled restaurant draws gourmands and members of the expense-account set, announced Wednesday he plans to open a second Chicago eatery in a new 60-story luxury hotel and condominium project.

"We're excited to deliver not just a stamped-out, high-end experience, but something that is really personal and something that has a genuineness about it," Trotter said in an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press. "I can't wait."

Trotter, the author of a dozen books and host a PBS cooking show, has been a fixture in Chicago's culinary world for nearly two decades. While his dishes are known for their use of vegetables, Asian influences and French techniques, Trotter is infamous for his food-as-art presentation and serious philosophy on cuisine. (An introduction to one book quotes Goethe and Dostoyevsky.)

i quite like the look of this one right now, it might look a little too new though once completed... so after year or two the stone clad will look tastefully 'worn' how tall would anyone estimate it a the moment?

Actually, the "stone" is precast concrete panelling - not going to age/weather as real limestone would.
