OMG. And with the staggered rotation of each floorplate this shot will be amazing.

From the 103rd floor Sears SkyDeck

Aerial shot


These really are amazing!!! It's so cool being able to see what Chicago will hopefully look like in a few years. I'm even more inlove now with the Fordham Spire!

As far as your work STR - I can only say "Excellent"!

What's a little shocking about this is how little skyline impact the 1,000+ ft. Waterview has...

^ Chicago's talls are stretched out in such a way that most towers that are anything less than 1,100 feet are relatively "short" in appearance on the skyline.

I mean holy smokes, if everything gets built that is suppose to it's skyline will reach over 1,000 feet 8 times.

Fordham Spire - 2,000 feet - 1,458 feet roof.
Telecommunications Tower - 2,000 feet.
Sears Tower - 1,450 feet - 1,729 feet masts.
Trump International Hotel & Tower - 1,362 feet - 1,171 feet to roof.
Aon Center - 1,136 feet
John Hancock Center - 1,127 feet - 1,499 feet masts.
Waterview Tower - 1,047 feet.
AT&T Corporate Center - 1,007 feet - 886 feet roof.

You should approach developers with your work. They could really use it for marketing purposes!

Messing around with water effects (see improved version below)


Long awaited shot of Trump from just south of Walbash and Wacker.


Hancock Center and Gold Coast from Fordham Spire.
