On the bright side, Lakepoint Tower, among other stubby towers, make for a more dense-looking skyline at night.

I'm hoping most people will just not know it's there. . . lost tourists don't usually make it down to Harbor Drive. . . some do, but it's not a nuisance. . . yet. . .

I think if there are crowds heading inland after an event, they would just continue through the tunnel to LSE park on the lower level, rather than going up a narrow staircase. Then they can fan out to various access points to continue east (Field Blvd, 2x Aqua stairs, elevators in the Village Market, etc).

The real value of the stair is for the many random tourists who end up on Harbor Drive trying to walk to Navy Pier. All you need is one sign directing these folks down the "hill" past Cirrus and they will end up at DuSable Harbor where the new flyover takes them the rest of the way. Reopening the stairs on the LSD bridgehouses will help to bring people from the riverwalk to Navy Pier too.

They really should find a way to better connect the river walk to Navy Pier. LSD makes it such a mess for out of towners to figure out how to get from the river walk/Michigan Ave to the Pier. Its like a tourist black hole over there

You know many have opined on the choice of which color, brown or beige, was placed closer or further from the lake on which building .. but in the above picture they appear to play perfectly off their neighboring buildings that abut them exactly from this view. That may or may not have been done intentionally but it clearly was the best choice.

this easternmost area of Lakeshore East would look 10x better if these buildings differed in height more. Parcel I should help but it will still look like a crayon sticking up out of the box?

Wow, the park is starting to look like it's been there for awhile now.

^^ If they could keep the top open like that - the gap on the 3rd level down. Not only is it the buildings own private lakefront deck, but the condos above become even more exclusive.

Do you know if there will be a deck on the first setback?

Link not working for me but this slide on their site shows a 'private owner's terrace' so it looks like there is one for the condo owners. https://cirruscondos.com/amenities#slide5
