Maybe one of One Centrals towers could be 2,016 FT since its right next to soldier field, it's not baseball or the cubs home stadium but I don't think there's gonna be a 2,016ft tall skyscraper in Lakeview anytime soon.

I'm trying to be realistic, 1,492 is a realistic height, ~2000 is not for this project

Good suggestions though, I wish

With a 108 foot spire to commemorate them being trash for over a century.

Haha I'd be ok with that.

/\ Like someone pointed out to me earlier there's a difference between office and residential!

One of the best buildings in the city and they couldn't bother using limestone or a light-colored brick? JFC

They did something similar on the old Sears building in Ravenswood. The addition is ugly and lazy.

Yeah I’m not a huge fan of the look but it’s far enough up where the low quality shouldn’t be too noticeable from ground level.

They also used these metal panels on the backside of the Cook County Hospital reno and I was not a fan.

Yeah the gray doesn't fit for me at all. Also cannot believe there is no masonry. All sins will be forgotten though if they build the new tower as currently designed.

You must hate the London House than since there's no masonry?

I actually think this is tasteful and i'm loving the setback!

This looks good to me. They continued the art deco style without trying to do something crazy like a contrasting brick or, gasp, POMO. The metal will age better than anything with masonry. It would have looked odd to have a close but different shade of stone in 10 or 20 years. I like it.

^ I like it too. If you can't match/blend, don't try.

matching/blending/imitating often fails

better to not even try and make it look clearly different

Such a historic building should be treated better than this.

that's also the portion that was the later addition and isn't the footprint of the original tower BUT, all the points are well-made

I think it looks okay. They could've gone a bit edgier/modern imo.

It damn well should be understated. The quieter the better. I think it looks just fine.
