Moot point of course, as clearly it would appear Crescent Heights has subsequently gone in a different direction and has gone with Vinoly for a complete reworking, breaking Roosevelt-fronting parcel into a couple towers.

I will miss 'The Chicago' though - the massing was perfecto.......
It's simple, really - try not to design or build trash.
