My drive-by earlier today:





I'm assuming the exterior 'V' expression on the facade that corresponds to the structure at the base will be installed later on....?

Yes there are brackets for the external trim that follow the actual structural members.

This surprised me a bit when it first went up, but on second thought it made a lot of sense the way they did it. Having the glass continuous through and behind the covers is much simpler and better technical detailing both for avoiding awkward glass shapes and reducing the number of joints, including diagonal joints that could be prone to leak. And once it's done the general public will never know the difference.

^Nice angle. What a beautiful building. It's everything BOA failed to be. I especially like how the serrated facade visually softens the corners.

Will the top of the building be lit up at night?

Lots of potential for the south branch... what is the likelihood of redeveloping the huge post office facility to the south of OPO, as well as capping those train tracks? Are we going to see downtown push this direction, or around?

Driving north on the Dan Ryan into the loop yesterday, I was struck by the feel of this tower looming over the Circle. Yuge impact!
Yes, best angle IMO. Feels like I'm in a new city from that vantage.

We can see this building from our new place. I think it looks a bit better in person than on most pictures. It's not my favorite building but it could be worse.

No offense to you or this building, but if it was your favorite I'd be worried...

Wow, the cladding on those structural supports look fantastic! This building just keeps getting better and better!

Thanks for the great pics, everyone!
