Taken from the Sears Tower on 7/06/08. The Elysian is located on the middle right hand side of the picture.

Update

8th of August

I'm looking forward to see it fully cladded. Let's hope this won't turn out as nouveau-rich-shite
The renderings really looked promising.

I have been waiting to see a tower like this forever.

Is the metal just a frame for the roof?

I see that they are putting in lights on the outside of the building.

The lower part of the building looks ridiculous. Why so low, tiny and puny? The ensemble is crooked. The lower part looks a bit out of place.

Reproductions are a tricky style to pull off right. I've seen Chicago do a great job of it with a town house development I saw. This one, I'm not sure. I'll wait till it's done. Much will depend on the finishes. It could look great, or it could end up just a tacky reproduction.

Toronto had great success with the recently built 1 St. Thomas. It's gorgeous. Another called the Uptown, may not be as successful. The Elysian is a nice departure from the sterility of many glass condos being built, but this might miss the mark. Best to wait and see.

Why are architects still designing post-modernist buildings? It looks so late 80's (and cheaply built at that). But thank you EndlessWaltz for the photo updates!
