Brick red is not a popular color for Chicago skyscrapers. But considering the location of this condo tower, it is appropriate, and a welcome change from the glass and steel boxes that seem to rise on every corner. The Columbian is evocative of the heritage skyscrapers that made Chicago great. Featuring a strong base, a prominent shaft and then upper-level setbacks that are reminiscent of the few remaining luxury residences that once lined Michigan Avenue in the Loop. In all, a good presentation with a warm feel.
