the halfway vent sucks sucks regardless which side you consider its on...this side is facing grant park!...one could argue the more popular side ...why wouldn't you just make it consistent..I mean its so random its hard not to question it

I'd agree the halfway-reaching vent will take some getting used to if we'll have to live with it. But -- It will never bother me as much as the uneven antenna towers on 875 N. Michigan.

Agree, it is a true distraction. Odd, some people can give it a pass so easily.

This issue could actually be an asset. Depends on your frame of mind.

I like the guy in the back wearing the red shirt wiping away his tears of joy. *Sniff* "It's so beautiful!"

None of the mechanical louvers on the south face are depicted in that model but the blow through floor looks as it does today

On a building this tall, there is no “back side”.

In what was otherwise a terrible game, we did get this rather lovely shot of the tops of the supertalls during the Saints-Bears game.

Hate to say it but I would have preferred a shorter tower over the blow-through floor. Holding out hope that they will do something to make it less horrible....
