^ The Tower is nice, but that white-gray blue coloring on the side is God awful. I hope that’s not gonna be visible from Michigan Avenue in perpetuity. If so, it will really ruin the building

I’m surprised they didn’t go with green. Rush University is opening an outpatient facility in the base.

I honestly don't understand why developers go with those weird colored patterns on new buildings. It almost always looks bad.

I think the dark grey looks great. Keep in mind that it's the end of another long winter and that color is nearly traumatic rn. In the summer it will offer a lot of depth.

I would imagine it would entirely depend on ho long that parking lot sticks around. I believe it belongs to the 1439 S Michigan building. Considering there are balconies overlooking the parking lot, the residents there may not want to part with it anytime soon, assuming its a condo development. If its a rental building, its a different story altogether.

I was just looking back at the Tribune Tower redevelopment and the 3D model rgarri4 has of the city. With Vista, Aon, Two Prudential Plaza, Trump Tower, Tribune Tower redevelopment, Wolf Point South lurking in the back. We should call it "The Billion River" get it like Billionaire row? Pretty cool idea to be honest.

And here we have a great example of a pointless comment on this forum. A simple "I prefer Chicago River" would have been fine. Have a good night!

Sort of new to this forum (not really I've been reading for a year) I'll make sure to keep my incredible thoughts to myself next time.

People on the internet can be jerks. I, personally, got a chuckle out of your suggestion.

***Friendly Moderator Note***
For all (relatively) new forum members, welcome! And please note: don't be dicks to one another. Everyone notices, and while we may not always agree, sometimes even hate each other's opinions, no one will be suppressed, nor should anyone feel afraid to speak out about something. Short of gross infractions of any forum rules, or even just being a total asswipe, dont feel shy, but please TRY to be civil..a lesson we've all had to learn. Thank you!

the glass appears to be going up on the hotel at 11th and Wabash. From a distance, it looks green and nice.

To me, it's the equivalent of if developers put shag carpeting on the exterior of buildings in the 1970s. It's trendy now, but will be universally hated shortly.

This is exactly why I'm sort of meh about 1 S Halsted. I really wanted to like that building but i think the glass pattern looks a bit trite.
