There are three comments.

  This building is so neat, that it will become an icon and landmark when completed. The roof is of Turquoise Aluminum, while the rest of the building is concrete. Lagrange must be happy with what he is doing to the "Mag Mile", along with Park Tower (his first big achievement), Ritz Carlton Residences (his most colorful "Mag Mile" Building), and now this distinctive feature on Chicago's Skyline.

  It is the same architect as Park Tower. The final stone precast is a lot lighter than the pic shows and very high quality.

  i love the architecture but the building's location is horrible, i also think the building could have been designed with diffrent materials, and color....It looks to much like park tower!!!! lets get something different over there.
