I like this idea the best... it would enhance the cityscape.

I'd be excited just to watch this get painted so high up. It'd likely draw several eyes upward. I'm also very partial to 30 E Balbo's mural, which turned an otherwise humdrum building into something pretty striking.

A mural would be a great idea for a building that wouldn't erase the artist's work to put in a Phase 2 three years later.

Or a green wall, but again, too expensive to be temporary at least in Chicago.

Permits to Regulate Blank Walls

That is a good question. I'm speculating, but it seems from the height and elevation of the exposed surface area on the attached structures, although blank as they are now with a uniform blue surface, that painting over them with just a single color or placing a mural on their surface would require a city permit. Also, should the mural constitute a sign or ad (message), then a permit is required.

Its crazy driving down Columbus and seeing this in person and how big of a hulk it is going to be. Even crazier is imagining it and its big brother and how they are going to overwhelm everything south of Roosevelt. Their going to look like red woods in an apple orchard.

Not that it bothers me in the least, but the corner units to the south of this lost one hell of a view!

What’s the construction phasing/schedule for the second tower? Or would they sell all of these before building that one?
