^ All they needed to do was use the same windows as the tower. A blank and boring but well dressed garage facade facing the street would be better than what we are getting.

They started installing the top floor glass today. Should be fully enclosed by the end of the week.

Also yes the podium is a damn shame.

Forgive the graininess, I was zoomed in on my phone but the last hand full units of glass are currently being installed. I hope they are still planning on some sort of crown. I don't think the flat roof/mechanical looks very good.

I still can't get over how poorly executed this garage is, and how awesome the tower looks. Its crazy that it's all part of the same development, designed by the same architect.

At least the side facing Halsted is covered up a bit better than the north/south facades. Still, horribly abysmal overall. Shame, this would have been one of the better developments of this boom cycle.

Thanks for the pics as always, Harry!
