^^ Columbian Model Makers has spent about 6-8 months designing and creating that model, which in person is pretty amazing. Since they do a lot of scale models for a lot of architecture firms in Chicago, they were able to include all building currently under construction or recently completed, such as the Aqua and Legacy @ Millenium park. even thought the model itself is only of the Chicago "Central Area" portion (it doesn't include anything along the gold coast/lincoln park/lakeview/edgewater or anthing south of the museum campus area) it's impressive because the scale is pretty large, 1/64" = 1'-0" if I remember correctly.
