    Yes. Agree. It will be outdone by a 26 story poverty box at exorbitant rates.

    I don't like it much!

    I appreciate the materials use and the facade. Nice transparency, screening and so on in the facade and parts&details are good. For someone attentive to detailing.

  3. Poll: Voted yes.

    Interesting thread. I voted for the project because it looks like it could be a cool building. I am very hesitant to call buildings GREAT before they are built.

    Calling it a landmark before it...

    Gone

    Well, the building is gone! I had sent landmarks a letter as well, last year, and got the same cookie cutter letter as lofter. Some months later I was pushed out of my nearby loft through exorbitant...

    Why is it that we are not seeing any street level images? All there is are postcard photos from miles away. I think it will be another megastore BS with entire ground floors taken up by some stuffed...

    The upcoming skyscraper is not going to fare better on history's scorecard, I'm afraid. I just don't see it improving things that can't happen with 47 West anyway except for the larger profit margin...

    Hmm. I do not see what is stunning about this tower proposal. It looks like any other tower. There are plenty of buildings going up with similar proportions. This seems to me to be just another...

    Nice photos yes. The dormer you point your lens at has the most rust stains. But all of this can be repaired -and should be repaired.

    I passed by the building this spring and the doorman said...

    Good point. But I think the fee should be variable according to the size of your vehicle. Small "green cars" would have the smallest fees.

    Great (1st) posting, Ryan. Thanks for the info.

    I am all for this business of curtailing vehicular traffic to make it more practical for everyone.

    Sorry. That drawing is the recipe of a grotesque building. I am shocked. It is completely tasteless as with a lot of the tax-deduction-whatevers going up in the area.

    On closer look, I am totally convinced by that white model but not by subsequent images, as shown in the Chicago Tribune. Which shows crooked traditional curtain wall windows.

    I agree.
    The Chicago structure reaches a level of beauty that the Malmo structure dosenīt have. In fact I feel the building in Sweden is quite clumsy and fake.

    I say the plumbing is a major problem. In fact I see porta-potties a realistic possibility (gold leafed of course). "The staff" can take care of that part.

    Maybe another option could be a...

    Of course every building should FUNCTION at street level. A continuous block long wall at street level is a dysfunctional building. A building in a city is not a building in some Office Park where...
  17. The equipment part... a practical question

    I walk by there several times a week and yawn at the shiny box.

    So I am wondering, why weren't the diesel generators placed underground so the sidewalk level could be activated? The building is a...

    I like the idea that most are "excited to see it rise." Fitting with the times we live in. :-)

    Wow. Awesome lil' rebar work. :-) I walk by there several times each day and noticed the same anchoring detail as is in the old bathtub. Thanks for posting the great photos.

    I'd say, that this is a reasonable concept as far as it goes. I'd think that there is limited noise in those planned underground bunkers anyhow, and the site is quite sizeable (I realize it is just a...
