not a fan of how Vista Tower's cladding is turning out. So drab. Ruining a great new skyline icon. The recently completed skyscrpaers have all had stunning facades. I guess i'll reserve final judgement until it is fully clad.

A lot of Vista's vibrancy and contrast is dependent upon lighting but that users photos are usually lifeless. In person I've seen much more variance in the glass and the facade is quite unique.

I don't like a facade that you can only appreciate so conditionally. Especially on such a high profile tower. The top of 53w53rd is another example. But that's more of an execution issue than a quality issue. Imagine this, but with the peak the same graphite/black coloration as the rest of the tower. It would have had an even more Gothic vibe. The opacity of the facade also changes to disguise the mechanical equipment, but as a previously said, it is very poorly executed for daylight conditions. Like with Vista, it really detracts from an otherwise magnificent tower.

It's surprising how many high end/high profile buildings can look so drastically different from one day to the next. Great buildings look good regardless of weather, lighting, etc.

Edmonton's river valley is a fantastic asset for the city.

This pic is georgeous and from a rare angle. This view will be insane if Related ever builds the terra cotta towers at the Spire site...Also the 950' tower at Site I and the Tribune Additiron would make the river mouth easily one of the best skyscraper collections/gateways in the world.

I am always completely underwhelmed and disappointed with Chicago's night-time lighting schemes and One Bennett Park is no game changer. Typical boring limited colorless up-lighting with minor accenting. This is another area where Chicago goes way out of it's way to not be NY.
