I do like that the balconies are partially enclosed. It makes them much less obtrusive.

not to mention safer. builders can only have so many residents falling out of open balconies before people start to call them careless.

The enclosed balconies actually give off somewhat of a structural expression, in my opinion. Akin to 3 WTC, minus the diagonal bracing. Very nice touch.
I had reservations when they added the balconies in the renderings, but they've turned out better than expected for me. OCS can do no wrong.

At that height it probably makes them much more comfortable too. These have got to be some of the highest true balconies in the city at over 800' off the ground... Probably the only other building with such high outdoor spaces is Vista...

Those Vista railings are like 3ft even on the top floor. Makes my stomach turn just thinking about being on one of those

I like the balconies' effect on the building's overall aesthetics. Without them, the building might look a tad too homogeneous and bland, similar to (though still not as bad as) a certain supertall residential tower in NYC.

I'm really glad they kept the spiraling steps on the west face. They could have very easily VE'd that to just one flat setback and I don't think any of us would have been too surprised. Disappointed, yes, but not surprised.

Same. Though they did seem to get rid of one setback on the north face compared to this which I think was the last rendering: https://chicagoyimby.com/2020/12/one...countdown.html

Any idea which day? I live across the street and have been working on a time lapse video for the past 2 years… I’d love to not miss the crane coming down!

It is supposed to start Tuesday and take a couple weeks to get down (this activity is very weather dependent). State Street will be completely closed once it is lowered down far enough for the mobile crane to pick it.

Great, thanks for the info. I’ll post the full construction time lapse in about two weeks then!
