I walked by it the other day for the first time. Definitely has an impact urban-wise. Really great to that all of a sudden there isn't a huge parking lot right after you were walking in a pretty urban street to begin with. Looks pretty nice too of course. Will be interesting to see how the plaza is once it's open.

Beautiful sunset photo this evening showing One Chicago among the high rises of River North, Streeterville, the Gold Coast, and beyond.

The spacing of Chicago's tallest buildings is perfect.

Am I stepping out of line with saying that I think One Chicago is the best tower to rise in the last 10 years for the Chicago region. IMO, in terms of the aesthetic impact it has and its proportions.

Love St Regis and all but IMO, One Chicago just has the type of design and impact that I think will cement itself as one of the greats in terms of the new generation of towers representing the 21st Century.

100% agree with this.

I like the St. Regis. It's a great addition, but this building just has a level of beauty and grace to it that St. Regis doesn't. It stands out so much more for the very reasons you just described.

____________________________________________

One Chicago is way better than St. Regis.

The shifting setbacks and the playful neo-Deco of One Chicago's lines enliven the building without being detrimental to the sense of integrity.

The building is disappointing from the North/South and it seems less solid than (and by its proximity to) the Hancock, but it is a much better

addition to the city than St. Regis. The St. Regis looks cobbled and superficial by comparison. The St. Regis is an embarrassing display of over-reach

which should have stopped at the level of the blow-through while One Chicago could have extended itself into much more height and still have had

integrity.

I prefer St. Regis. Another Jeanne Gang masterpiece! It is a building ahead of its time.

This is a wonderful tower and a great addition to the skyline. That said, when people visit Chicago, I do not believe they will leave here talking about this tower — with the caveat being whether or not they are skyscraper nerds/aficionado’s of course. But to the casual visitor, it is my feeling that St.Regis wows and makes a bigger, lasting impression. Unless within close proximity, many causal visitors will barely notice OCS, but St.Regis gets practically everyone’s attention. It is just that different and stunning — particularly on days when the sun hits the various colors/shapes of that tower… reflecting off the river and lake.

It is something best witnessed in person. Pictures don’t do St.Regis justice. Moreover, due to its critical acclaim right now combined with its unique shape & colors of the glass, again, I feel that St.Regis is ahead of its time. In a decade, I think the view of St.Regis will be different (in an even more favorable way) from its view today - vis a vis the Thompson Center when it was first built, vis a vis the Sears Tower when it was first built.

I could be wrong on that of course. Time will tell.

But here is my bottom line on the issue —- I like having them BOTH.

Well said. Both rock my socks. Thought I'd bring this great photo post back. They look amazing together and are pushing this city skywards.

That's also partially a function of location. I live very close to Millenium Park and I always hear tourists commenting "whoa, that's a cool building." Though often followed by "what's up with that floor that's empty?"
