A nice addition to the Chicago skyline. Though it's not the tallest buildings in the city, the twin tower design is situated very close to the water, giving it visual prominence. The blue glass presents a unifying path between the blue-green water of Lake Michigan and the sometimes impossibly blue skies over the city.

Quick Facts
Notes
  • In the 1990's there was a plan to build a 74-story apartment tower with 595 residences at this location. It was never built.
Controversy
  • This project was loudly opposed by local groups because of the shadow it casts over a nearby beach.
