Um, are you talking about the glass podium of 500 LSD, across the street?

Related should be ashamed of that garage turd it built across the street. Totally ruins that otherwise beautiful winter scene.

A link to the tallest Bennet one tower crane.

Took by one of my friends.

Above.

Thank you so much.
I may rely on both of you for a while to fix my links that confound me so much at this moment.

Thanks for sharing. Vista looks especially slender from way up there.

Kind of cool how you can see the water variation from river and lake when locks not being used often!

New rendering shows that there's no bronze colored details on the rest of the building:

^For those of you confused by the geometric differences in the two renderings, the one on the bottom is actually mirrored and is a view of the south facade, while the one on top is the north facade.

Bummer, but not unexpected as none of the tower had any bronze up at this point despite most renderings implying there was supposed to be bronze cladding. This building isn't ugly, but it's definitely lame that a place that will cost as much to live in and be as prominent as it will be in Streeterville got VE'd so hard. Related better not be cheapos with the Spire site. Who am I kidding of course they will be

Shocked, I'm just shocked...

Oh wait, this has literally been the conversation since the day this design surfaced. Here's a quote of mine from like the 4th page of this thread:

That is the only economic function here. As such, we can deduce that building in this style is NEVER a good idea. We are not getting a 15 CPW here period, for the very same economic reason you listed. What I expect is for developers from other cities not to come here and drop a heaping load of shit in our city and set it ablaze. Everyone knows this design is just going to turn out like another Elysian with classy materials like corrugated tin apparently salvaged from a slum in Haiti and what essentially amounts to freeway retaining wall components for a curtain wall.

The richest part of this whole design is that this is what Related thinks is "stepping up their design game" or whatever ridiculous quote we saw a while back was. How such culturally vapid people rise to the top of massive companies like Related is completely beyond me. What they think they are building is a 1926 Dusenburg, what they are really building is a 1996 Caddilac Deville, and what we are debating over is whether we want our shitty mid 90's GM product to come with a false fabric top or just hardshell.
Seriously, they didn't even buck up for corrugated warehouse siding like Elysian, they even VE'd the paint job out of this design. Are we all still surprised that Related is a garbage developer who doesn't give a shit what a deuce they drop out of their ass here? Exhibit A as to why we should permanently ban ye olde classical horseshit as a style and Related as a developer from this city.

Oh and they are putting up the "real stone" on the base and it only goes up two floors and is a horrible mismatch tone compared to the concrete above it. Not. Fooling. Anyone.

Perfect example of bait and switch. What a shame. What Stern's throwback towers lack is the detail. At first glance you might think it's stone but if you look at it for more than 10 seconds it's flat precast concrete. The flatness of it is what really detracts Stern's works from being outstanding. There's no decorative flairs on the facade. It's all in the silhouette. The silhouettes are great, but the facade is dull.

as long as a seemingly endless supply of rich idiots continue to pay top dollar for this garbage nothing will change. those who VE the design left and right will rise to the top because they are extracting maximum profit at the lowest expense.

From an article published today in ChicagoMag:

“[One Bennett Park] is our signature development and will be for the foreseeable future,” Bailey says. “It’s a building that will mark the eastern edge of the Chicago skyline in perpetuity.”

Those bolded words, emphasis mine, don't inspire confidence in the height of whatever Related plans for the Spire site. If Bennett Park is to mark the eastern edge "in perpetuity," then let's just give up our dreams of a giant development at 400 N LSD.

Lets hope there just trying to over emphasize bennet park for the sake of the article... It would be the biggest disappointment if the Spire site is anything less than 1000ft
