Agree. The operating local developer here - Magellan - is an outfit that by all historical evidence apparently believes that balconies are a necessity to move high rise residential units in Chicago. They're wrong, of course, and that's unfortunate.

I agree that it would look better without the balconies but imagine the thrill of standing 1,150 feet/350 meters (height of the last floor) above Chicago

JHC !!!!!



Yeah Nick that pic was pretty dope.

I hope it stays on the intertubes forever.


One day you should let it be public domain at some point because it is that good and I would hate the world not to see that shot again. Plus you would live eternal like the great pyramids of Giza and be known for eternity if you released it to the world.


Yeah its that good. Who else could capture that angle at the right time.


You my man are immortal.

With so much west-facing glass now up, later in the day before sunset I get some nice light that reflects off Vista right into my place with a cool blue hue to it.
