I am happy that the three WP towers will look so different. It’s a lot better than the three tower designs and will present the Point as a continuation of the cityscape and not isolate it as a single ‘development’

Do fins like these serve a function or are they just decorative?

^ I don't even live in Chicago and I appreciate that rainy-day picture!

It's funny seeing glass go on so soon, considering our recent experience with the concrete beast in LSE

Love It! Let the good times ROLL!

The Apparel Mart doesn't look too bad when it's just a slice of background texture.

^ As we expected. I'm thankful for the new paint job. A backdrop is all it is. Also adds to the vibrancy of the city at night, as seen from the river with its many twinkling lights.

This made me pretty infuriated. Some punks sprayed "SONIK" all around the river walk... pretty pathetic.

Nice framing on that first one ! I never give the punks an audience, having been a punk at one point in my life I can assure you that ignoring them is the worst thing you can do to them.
