I hope they change the design it looks just like SWFC without the hole. Otherwise it would be interesting, Americans copying Chinese instead of the other way around!

I think it's too soon to tell. Based on the one render we have, yea it does look similar. But it could look completely different at places we can't see. (the top, the bottom, the 2 sides)

yes!
this is exactly what i was going to say.
We have no idea what this thing is going to look like.
We only have one fairly small render from one side so i think it is to early to jugde it. (or compare it)

I don't see why people have such a problem with buildings looking like other buildings. All that should matter is whether the design is attractive.

Odd couple plans new Streeterville tower
Quote:
Feb. 24, 2007
By Thomas A. Corfman

Developer Christopher Carley is planning a luxury hotel and condominium development a few blocks from the site where he once proposed building the tallest building in North America, before losing control of the project.

An unlikely duo of Mr. Carley and developer Michael Reschke, ousted chairman of Prime Group Realty Trust, has a contract to buy 2.3 acres just north of the downtown Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers for $60 million, sources familiar with the deal say. In addition to high-priced condos, the two also are considering adding a posh hotel like the Hotel de Crillon, which Mr. Carley once attempted to bring to the twisting tower, now called the Chicago Spire.
An old story but it seems highly connected!

totally agree with you, a tower has to look good and not more
