No need to turn it, they just should have pushed the tower a little more north and then had the developer make it a little thinner so it could be pushed back off Michigan slightly more.

The river corridor is really starting to approach Midtown Manhattan levels of "cram em in" skyscraper density. The difference being our suprerior public planning leaving more views because of things like the river, Columbus, LSE Park, and Boule Mich. Once LSE, Spire Site, and the old Mandrin site are built out, The area between Randolph and Kinzie from Wolf Point East is going to be quite a sight to behold.

nice pictures!

speaking of blocking C&C, apparently the London House rooftop bar was voted the 2nd best nationwide (https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/loca...nwide/2520526/) though the blocking of the C&C from the cupola probably brings it down a slight notch.

if they're sticking with the mundane top 90% of this tower, I almost wish they'd run out of money and just stop it here. We really don't need another blue box, particularly one that blocks iconic views.

In a perfect world I'd transfer the height over to Salesforce
