A typical example of American spirit of skyscrapers. Nice box.

Doesn't look like it will have any problems with zoning and they're rental towers (with office space and retail) so you don't have to worry about sales.

Anyway, the site of the towers is also pretty interesting. It is the old CBS studio building, home to the first televised presidential debate between Kennedy and Nixon.

gorgeous towers. Extremely nice in their simplicity. Hope they get built.
Can anybody show the impact on the skyline? I would do it if I knew how to use photoshop...

Very nice, especially at the base (as previously mentioned). I'd consider a darker shade of glass, but it's nice to see new proposals in the face of the credit crunch. This would've been a great design for Block 37.

These are going to really stick out and hopefully add much more depth to that area of the skyline, hopefully they will fill the skyline role lost by the 680 N. Rush failure.

This is really a solid design, I'm glad to see this site put to such good use instead of being annexed into the Northwestern Hospital hellhole...
