^ Something very non-Chicago about that.

The current "handle" design could serve as the roof for some sort of winter garden, or restaurant, or a private penthouse. At least it could serve a function

It's a Chinese skyscraper but I always felt like it would fit well in our city. It has sort of a 2 Prudential Plaza meets Aon Center as designed and implemented by Hines. And in my opinion, clearly a better top to it.

Near North Side residents air opposition to proposed 60-story tower



Gail Marks Jarvis
Contact Reporter
Chicago Tribune

March 14, 2017

Quote:
A group of developers is proposing a 60-story hotel, luxury condo and retail tower at Superior Street and Wabash Avenue amid objections from nearby residents on the Near North Side.

The joint project by New York developer Symmetry Property Development along with Golub & Co. and Fordham Real Estate of Chicago would be on the northeast corner of Superior and Wabash, one block west of the Peninsula Hotel and just west of a Giordano's restaurant.

Ald. Brendan Reilly, 42nd, said Symmetry and Golub independently purchased adjacent properties and planned two towers, but he urged them to work together on a single tower.

The result is a proposed glass Carillon Tower that would include 246 luxury condominium units, 216 hotel rooms, 120 time-share units, two floors of retail and restaurant space, and 325 parking spaces on five levels. It would be one of the tallest buildings in the Near North neighborhood, yet shorter than the 98-story Trump Tower. The architect is Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

^^^ Have you tried driving in midtown Manhattan? We tried to take a taxi once from Lexington to Times Square. The taxi driver just laughed at us and told us to walk.

Que horrible I know. But I'm betting that's where their thoughts go.

I'm not going to get too wrapped up with the current design. By the time shovels hit the dirt they'll VE the crap out of this in standard Chicago fashion and we'll just have a square glass box.

I like the proposal and what they actually went with. Both still more appealing than the round to me, though this rounded crown is certainly not the worst we could get.

Yes I've driven in Midtown Manhattan.

To be honest, driving in Midtown Manhattan is ironically fun...

But that's not my point

It looks a lot better now that they released the more detailed renders. I still don't like the building top shape, but even there the details are not bad.

I really like it too. I think one way they could improve the top is to increase the height of the arches as they get closer to the edges to produce more of a back-to-back, dual Hollywood Bowl band shell effect. It would make the top more dynamic, and make some of that cross bracing more visible from more vantage points. The cross bracing at the top is one of the coolest elements to the crown, and it would be a waste to only be visible from directly above.

But overall, I really like this one.

Remember, the arches are structural, not just aesthetic.
