    And Chicago is starting to look like a Big Town!

    I must say that the landscaping around several of the recently or nearly completed buildings is beautiful.

    Am I the only one who finds this tower bland? I mean, the massing is nice and all - but no detailing - the walls are kind of featureless - and the glass is nothing special.

    I miss masonry towers - even the bland ones had a little something to look at it.

    What a nice looking tower. Too bad Trump Soho here in NY pales in comparison.

    The difference though is the residents' approach to tall towers. If Trump tried to build anything that tall in NY, people would fight him. In Chicago, they want tall towers.

    I noticed Chicago has tons of good sites too.

    Land is cheap and plentiful and mayor Daley is definitely a fan of bigger is better

    Ultimately though Chicago builds a lot of crap too. Most of its new office towers from the past 10 years are lame boxes. New York's new office towers are nicer.

    ^ I disagree, I like their boxes more than NYC's
