I love this neo-classical designs - in Chicago there are few and they are lovely as well.

I would'nt say these are neo-classical designs but more like modern pieces of architecture that incorporate classical "gimmicks".
In DC you will more obviously find neo-classical buildings...

I'd say it incorporates both aspects from past architectural styles and combines them with modern ones.

Why do i feel like if it was the 1930's this building would already be completed? Back then it would only take a year, and this is what like year three or four?

The east skyline silhouette of 30 Rockefeller, and the lowrises on Fifth:



30 Park Place has turned out to be a very fine evocation of New York in the 1930s.
