They're not pretty, but I do appreciate anything that pulls the skyline to the west in that area.

A video tour of the amenities

YoChicago's Joe Askins shot a video tour of the amenities level and a brief look at the exterior.

I don't see how anyone could seriously call these buildings "ugly."

They may not be as avant-garde as some would wish, but they are clean, modern, graceful designs which form a significant contribution to the neighborhood.

Check out the glass wall at one end of the basketball court in this video.

Fifield Sees Lease Demand at New Alta Towers
Last Updated: July 27, 2010 02:38am ET
By Robert Carr


Apartment leasing continues to hold the crown of success in Chicago, with demand stronger than ever, as evident by lease velocity at the two new towers at the $850 million Alta at K Station project. Leasing at the 41-story east tower and the 37-story west tower has hit almost 30 contracts a week for the past several weeks, according to developer Fifield Cos., with demand for the 848 units not seeming to slow down.
