Too bad that view will soon be gone (300 N Michigan). Beautiful shot.

Also, makes me wish for a shorter building at WPS in exchange for a supertall where Apparel Center stands.

Drove in on the Kennedy yesterday in daylight and was pleasantly surprised by how visible WPE was. Still hoping to get to 950 feet for WPS.

Agreed! why would anyone want a complete cavernous feel on the river. You'd lose the magnificent "light up" in the evening down the whole Riverwalk.

^Would be awesome if WPW was twice as thick so that almost all of that building was covered up when Salesforce is built.

Yeah, that's a fantastic photo, jc.

I love the dialogue between WPE & 300 N LaSalle.
