Wow.

Who knew this was even possible? I love that they decided to add on top of an existing building, but can you imagine the planning it must take to pull off such a feat of engineering?

Wow.

The building was designed and engineered from the start to have this vertical expansion at a later date - see post #1. But it's not something we see too often, and the whole process appears to have run very smoothly. There would have been a lot of logistical planning done before they started to put up another 24 floors, and its paid off.

I know exactly what you meant. I noticed that too, right away.

Too me, this pictures gives me the feeling of some structures standing in a very cold and isolated place.

But in reality Chicago is a Superb City...been there 3 times already, coming soon next year.
