The confusion on the color of the glass and the effect of the gradient all makes sense now, this building looks like a different iteration of itself each day.

Thanks for that office pic, bono.

I haven't checked on the forums in a minute. that desktop picture is sweet, im actually using the original version because i like the darker erie vibe.

Didn't see vista today but I already know she's looking gorgeous in this ferocious wintery mix

Was driving in to McCormick on friday from I55 in the morning about 930am, the way the sun was hitting the top of Vista the entire top was a bright shinny gold. It was a sight to behold...couldn't stop for a pic though without crashing.

Fantastic aerial photo. So many new buildings around the Western stop. I walked around that area the other day down Milwaukee and there's so many new buildings that the area was almost unrecognizable from a few years ago.

What an impressive view, Vista is always imposing from any view. Both Vista and NEMA both seem to always hit above their weight, meaning they look taller on the skyline than their actual heights. Maybe its because of their locations and elevations.

Proportions, I'd say.

New tenant lounge opened on the 70th of Aon, I'll definitely be coming back up on a clearer day.

Looks like iRobot won't be that far off if things keep going like this. Also, I just noted that they got the MoMa Tower in NYC in there, even though this was made damned near 20 years ago on the far right lol
