What is happening to the circle windows? The renderings on page 5 of this thread show the circles on the north side of the site remaining, while the rest of the wall, including the southern half of the circles, is covered in ivy. I agree though, I would like to see them all removed.

I think they are required to ventilate exhaust and deal with air pressure changes from the rail. Not positive though

The big difference being that Torre Mayor is a Mexican icon in terms of architecture. In Chicago, a 730 foot skyscraper will go largely unnoticed.

Construction Underway for River Point's 730-foot Tower



Quote:
Construction is now underway for the 52 story office tower that will stand at the western end of the main branch of the Chicago River. A few months ago we were wondering just when work on River Point's tower would start, as the project's tunnel-plaza first phase has been finished for a while. At last, heavy equipment is now on-site and workers have begun digging the deep holes that will make up the tower's foundation. At 730 feet, River Point will be quite a bit taller than any of its near neighbors, which mostly fall in the 450-650' range. When the tower is completed in 2016, Chicagoans will find a practically re-engineered confluence area of the river as Wolf Point and 150 N Riverside will both have new towers and the Riverwalk expansion will stretch on.
