^ Agreed. I don't say much in these forums (as I don't readily have time to follow all the excitement these days), but hot damn. THAT is how you treat a building's parking element. Very nicely done!

I think it will be fine. The parking element treatment rocks, and the building will be toward the back of a much larger development. Why waste your design bang on something that will be in the background.

I'm actually much more concerned about what the unrelated development on the Wells/Harrison corner will do.

One down. So many more to go! How many years is this development supposed to take to complete?

Less time than it has spent as an empty lot.

I know it's a random comment, but I wish your Chicago Model was interactive with VR headsets. Me O My that would be fun!

I believe the end date was supposed to be 2023, but with the project being split into two parts, who knows if the timeline gets longer.

I actually have all the tools to make that happen! I would just need time to work out how game play would work. Like would you only experience it from the ground or would you also have a flying ability or a jet pack or something lol.

Unlike NEMA I'm not digging the painting of the concrete on this one. This really would of looked better with just the raw concrete texture especially in close ups.

And thus a new business was born in making VR "games" to walk around in virtual models of some of the world's best architectural cities

My rendering company already creates architectural VR walkthroughs. If I can get enough buzz going I could possibly get this project in the works! Maybe make it available for the Occulus Go.

A beautiful spirit. His flame burned bright but it was destined to be snuffed out too soon...too perfect to walk among us.

Or just too much crack and booze.
