Ugh! That old photo of The Bankers Building has the old Chicago Federal Building in it-- IMO THE biggest demolition mistake in Chicago's history.

Bike path is cool, though, wish it was there when I lived in Chicago.

^ would of been great if the that proposed development a few years back which included knocking down the realtor building..expanding the plaza and building a 90 plus story building on the huge lot behind it came to fruition... they were going for Chicago's version of Rockefeller center i believe... would of be interesting to see

^Agreed on both counts! I passionately hate his building. I hope something tall gets built behind it in that huge parking lot some day.

Was there ever a loose rendition or a massing study for that previous proposal, I can't recall?

Especially bad is the signage... please tell me that blue logo at the top is temporary. It looks to be painted on the glass?
