A couple of things about late 80's Jahn - he was original and he was not afraid to take chances. This tower embodies that. If anything, this tower's glass design is more conservative than 80's Jahn, but at this height and design, there is no other tower like it in world. Original, unafraid, tasteful this tower is.... I love it!

Fantastic BOLD addition to an iconic skyline.

Wishful thinking, but they might be able to light the area now! or even allow residents to wander inside... doubt it

This tower looks much better in overcast weather than in sunny weather. Just my 2 cents.

Chicago may not have the highest or the most skyscrapers...but my God, they have the best skyline. I remember seeing the skyline in person for the first time(as a non-child) in 2004. I was amazed by it and continue to be today. I know you guys are spoiled when it comes to skyscraper construction, but I think you all should be extremely happy and grateful to have such a beauty being built.

Huh, I wonder why the mechanical louvers, along with that thin strip of glass at the floor line in the middle of the black field, never showed up in the renderings...

I'm assuming it has something to do with the hotel floors requiring separate mechanicals

Excited to see Vista complete in the next few months. Anyone know if the hotel is still supposed to operate under the Wanda brand?
