The Chicago guys need to calm down when someone critiques a building and not start attacking them. It makes you seem like your not confident and that you can't take critisism.
Well a critique is one thing, all of the Chicago guys (has a nice ring to it) have been critiquing this building as well...especially the base. It's just that a lot of people would rather see density and street-life in Streeterville rather than shooting down the whole proposal, and saying that a parking lot should stay there for now..
IMHO, in response to this vs. the Waldorf, I think I'd rather see a supertall go up in the loop - it would give the skyline a really cool focal point in the center rather than drawing one's eye towards the edge. Thinking about that has helped to ease my disappointment re: the Spire
Can't they just resurrect this!?: http://smithgill.com/work/7_south_dearborn/
