I like how this tower is expanding the skyline further to the west, hope too see more expansion westward in the future.

July 6,





I'm in agreement with several others on here. Of all the glass staircase-shaped buildings (the others being UBS Building, 110 N Wacker), this one is definitely my favorite. I was worried this one would be rather unremarkable due to how it was practically a copycat of the original design of 110 N Wacker. IMO 110 was a bit of a disappointment with how painfully featureless and monotonous the facade is as well as how axing the final setback to add more floor space made the building into a clunky, hulking thing.

"painfully featureless" are the words I've been looking for for 110 Wacker. It's great on street/river level though.

It's funny, this is a large building by almost any measure, yet here in Chicago amongst all the other discussions I'd completely forgotten about it.

That derrick has been on the building for an awfully long time. Wonder why it's still up there.

Dark precast panels going in along the podium on Clinton St. More zigzags! They look like quality precast at least... nice and crisp.

Yeah that concrete precast is pretty nice.

What is that podium for? I assume garage access?

That is correct, similar to One Bennett Park, with the park above a garage (even though that parking garage was already there from construction of the building on the west side of the site.

There are two levels of parking. The site slopes downhill to the west but the parking does not. So what is fully below grade at Canal is just slightly below the road level on Clinton. So yes essentially the whole Clinton side is various service access that couldn't happen on the other streets.

The openings from north to south are 1. the loading dock 2. the parking entrance and exit 3. the dip down is part of a terraced planter that spills down from the park and 4. the exit stair from the parking garage and pedway access.

It'd be really nice if they could add some small retail spaces along the sides of these podiums to liven them up. When I saw the openings on the precast I started crossing my fingers that it would be some retail. I've learned not to get my hopes up though.

They should line the blank walls with Amazon lockers.

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....?
