In a complete vacuum, I'd say this is a waste of development. It looks like you took "new york nouveau rich" and tried to graft it to Chicago.


Given the context of the area; it adds some good variety to the blue boxes, it stands out in height, it may play off of the NBC tower and the combination of this and the Gang building would add to the "gateway" effect of the river.

Hell, if the spire gets built, this would still make for good contrast.

Pomo is generally crap, but I'm ok with this, especially if they light it well at night (think Palmolive building)
