This building is turning out to look nothing like One Museum Park.

^I agree. Especially the N-S elevation. But I also feel like this one has awkward proportions. The setback is at the wrong height, or maybe it just doesn't need to be there. It clashes with the crown as it rises on an angle to the corner. Maybe the crown doesnt need to be there.

What are the rules for a crown of a building? Does lighting have to be approved before construction or is it trial and error after the crown is installed. If I remember correctly the spire of trump was only going to be lit solid white but changed to multi-color after it was installed. Im not even sure if this one will be lit up in blue like OMP but I could just imagine being pissed off if I payed millions for a penthouse across the steet and this things crown is lit up until 11 pm. Maybe some people like it glowing up their room. Streeterville just doesnt seem like the right venue to have a crown light up. Then again, nbc is pretty freakin bright at night.

I used to live across the street from NBC. It turned off every night at 11pm on the dot. You don't really notice it when its already on or off, but the sudden lighting change at 11pm was noticeable. It always reminded me to go to bed.

BOTH developer teams for this this project and the Lowes project promised to re-develop Odgen Plaza as part of their project. It didn't happen with Lowes, and it sure doesn't look like it is going to happen with this building.

They may wait for tower completion to start the park. Those pictures they posted awhile back of the future park look pretty sharp. Open, green, and friendly to the public. So I hope all goes through. On another note, huge crane hop this week. This one might catch up with One Bennett.

There's been some contention with the owner of the parking garage below the park. That's probably something that should have been dealt with before construction began, but that's what I heard.

Isn't the city involved in this park issue? I seem to remember threatened litigation by the city. The parking lot company being difficult?

Great pics Harry!

This project is going to start looking awesome as the glass starts moving up to higher floors. I really wish it was several hundred feet taller. Its nice when something that's not a box rises up in the skyline.
