God that's wonderful. It's like they took one of the great open-air moderns from the Hollywood Hills and airlifted it on top of a skyscraper. Really brilliant stuff.

Now we have to wait for the shiny Anish Kapoor blob sculpture, once they finish construction.

As those photos suggest, this tower might be thought of as the western marker for the beginning of "downtown" in the future.

The towers top isn't as dramatic as I was expecting.

this tower isn't finished yet - without crane and netting and with cladding it will be "as dramatic as you expecting"

This really is a great example of a tower having a very sculptural sensibility. And I also love how different it looks from every angle. Can't wait for the mini Kapoor cloud gate as well.

The cladding looks amazingly blue on a nice sunny day.
