I'm a little disappointed that it's another box. I appreciate the detail and the riverwalk is great, but I'd like to see something proposed that breaks the mold. I honestly think most of the people on the forum could design this, or better. There are some very good attempts at original design with office towers under construction or proposed in San Francisco, Philly and Seattle, and so it should be in Chicago.

Yes, the City has its own design aesthetic, but that doesn't preclude it from producing something new. We're seeing some great strides forward in residential stuff, but it hasn't happened yet with office. WPS is a good step in that direction but I'd like to see something bolder announced. It can still be big and broad shouldered, but it should be challenging.
