Not many cities have a Nick U in a helicopter delivering awesome pics like this.

He is our own visit Chicago organization.


Hopefully the civic minds that spend money on these skyscraper porn pics use some of his talent and compensate him. Like Choose Chicago for example.


I'm sure its not cheap to fly around the city every few days to give us this view.

They've got to be adding some mesh or louvers, right?

No way they would just leave open concrete for snow, birds, and general ugliness?

Yes, there will obviously be louvers like the mech floors.

I don't know how anyone can look at Nick and Harry's photo sets and be like "yup, this building sucks". It's like some emerald city shit and they haven't even cleaned the glass yet...

original renderings depicted an open area with framing and no screens



after recently published text we know there will be a screen for sure

Quote:
The 83rd floor, with its 25-foot-high ceilings, will be unoccupied. Instead of selling the pricey real estate, Gang and the engineers decided to surround the floor with a permeable screen to allow the wind to blow through the building to reduce the tower’s sway.

I vaguely remember the tribune also wrote about the final screen decision i can't find the article though

Question

In the new pictures I noticed what looked to be some sort of framing on the cantilevered lower section that has the different style windows. Are they finally installing that section or is that framing for something else?

"Star-chitect" is a thing now. Check this nice marketing video on a news channel.

Yes, the framing is for that section. Looks rad.

I wouldn't get too excited that framing is likely for spandrel glass

Perhaps she meant the last setback (I believe 78th floor).

Hmmm Hancock pool is on 44th. China has some really high ones, like the Ritz in HKG and the new one in Tianjin.

That terrace is going to be legend though!

I didn't read it but I know there is going to be like a 400,000 gallon liquid slosh water semi mass tuned damper up there to limit the sway. Nothing you could swim in. lol.

If anyone can correct me that I am wrong I would like to hear it.


Edit I watched it the outdoor terrace pool on the top is not a damper. It will certainly be the tallest pool in North America I am sure about that....


But I am pretty sure I heard about the liquid non pool damper I was talking about on this project.....


EDIT


Yep I was right again, I'm not losing it yet. lol





We also viewed the outside of one of six tanks tucked in the tower’s top. The tanks will hold more than 400,000 gallons of water. When the wind pushes the tower one way, the water will slosh in the opposite direction, joining with the blow-through floor to counteract sway.
