The Vista cam has finally been updated and it looks like there's been some massive progress on the skip! Just about half of it is down now

^^^^^^^^

Like a meticulous work of art city, painstakingly designed, and nurtured. Quality, not quantity.

Can't wait for you guys to get the Tribune tower!

Via Earthcam. Edited the camera view to get this angle.

One of the big boys. Vista is phat. Not as phat as Sears, but still a heavy tower.

Although it was built back in the day, I always liked Aon. Prob one of my top 3 Chicago towers if I had to pick.



July 21st, afternoonish.

Dang, this tower is beautiful. It's futuristic and cool, but it also looks like it always belonged there.

/\ Agree, very few cities can be hand drawn and be recognized instantly by the shape of their buildings!

I think eventually most of us will get used to the quasi-random dark stripes.

One of my favorite angles of the city, always. And always best with that sunset lighting

That's the color the glass was intended to be (green) but they balked at the extra cost. Still not exactly sure how a particular dye costs more than another. Whatevs.

Will anyone shoot me if I declare the building ugly? The attractiveness of that building escapes me, particularly when my eyes are riveted to the best looking condo building in Chicago: the curvy Lake Point Tower.
