These pics were taken two weeks ago, with a crappy cell phone camera. Its pretty obvious after the first few images. I think the rest of the images give a refreshing view of Chicago I have yet to see by others.









I have every angle from that building... I may upload more later.

I agree. thats a very cool and rare view. can you get me up there? :)
Private access only, friends place, rooftop terrace, and blue light. There are actually 4 huge bells below the glass dome.

A) dome
B) terrace where images were taken


I cant even honestly tell you the name of the building, but its pretty obvious which one it is. Its worth a try asking someone in the lobby if you can access the terrace at least for some good snapshots.

The Straus Building, currently known as Metropolitan Place Condominiums.
Yep, they are all newly renovated condominiums too... The central portion above the two side terraces is being converted to 2-6 massive pent houses. These will easily be some of the most desired locations in the world as far as location and view... I cant even imagine the price...

Unfortunately, the developer got approval for a carbuncle elevator addition that completely ruins the look of the tower.


I wouldn't say ruins... its almost impossible to see unless you are at a few select angles at ground level or in near by towers, the addition is pretty well concealed.
