The skyline is looking pretty good during the Bears games. OGP forming a nice wall and Vista/OBP standing tall on the far end.

I have a hard time getting the sizing right on these pictures from imgur. If someone can suggest a good ____ x ____ pixel combo for optimal sizing on this forum I would appreciate it.

Does it bother people in Chicago that Cleveland trolls have the Wikipedia entries for the Terminal Tower and the tallest buildings in the United States showing the Terminal Tower building as 771 feet, the "tip" height and not the architectural height?-thus moving several Chicago buildings(seven I believe) down the list?

if that actually bothers anyone, i would suggest they seek professional psychological assistance immediately.

Is there a thread for the 301-321 Wacker drive twins? I like that project and am curious about its status.

Dormant would be the nicest way to describe that one, but I'd imagine it's effectively dead. Not enough tenants to go around to justify building those two. Maybe next cycle?

We don't worry about buildings and their ranking at that height. All too common of a height and lost in the shuffle here, and as others said, that would be kind of silly to lose sleep over

At the end of the day they still live in Cleveland so you got to give those poor folks something. At least its a consolation prize that makes them happy.
