In my opinion, it kinda just looks like 110 Wacker. But it’s ok, it’s definitely not the ugliest! I like the height of it a lot!:smiley:

beats an oversized parking lot that’s for sure.

I always wondered why there aren’t more big office buildings near Union station given its a big commuter hub

That has always been my exact same thought. It seems like there are still a lot of old crappy buildings there that could be used for great big office buildings. Hopefully this will be looked at more as a good area for businesses. Crossing my fingers! :smiley:

some progress but not as much as I’d like to see. I will admit though, the weather has been WACK here in the midwest. Hopefully we see some more progress in the coming months! (feb 12):
