Actually I think the tower just to the North of it is quite handsome and I think the top only . The other two I think were built in the late 70's and are rather neutral/blah, but not particularly offensive.
Also let's be careful about generalizing the "60's towers" in the area. This building is two blocks South of two wonderful Mies towers and two blocks North of another excellent Mies building. Additionally there are several other extremely handsome and/or interesting modern towers in the area such as St. Joseph Hospital (wonderful 60's Goochie Style) and the awesome twin towers at 345 W Fullerton.
345 W Fullerton:
St. Joseph Hospital:

There are some absolutely fantastic modern towers in that area. So many that I would even say the "schlock" is in the minority.
