No, Baltimore got a new architect. Chicago is still the design by Erick van Egeraat that you can see in the picture - they decided to stick with their office 100% sure.

Kind of funny that 'Chicago' is a lowrise. However, it looks very sleek and I'd like to see it when completed.

the names are derived from the warehouses that used to be on each particular location, that's why they might not seem very logical

@Nathanaell,

Only the 158 meter (new Orleans is U/C) The tread says that all the towers are curently U/C.

Can you change it?
