Some more nuevo deco in Chicago now:

One Bennett Park









Id love to see a Liberty Mutual in the seaport and a shorter 30 park place downtown.

Either a 30 park or a 520 park ave, this is a new icon as well. Id love to see some copper roofs next too. Nobody has done it yet on any of these new limestone condo towers... lets do it Boston!! They get better with time too, in 20 years the green patina would be a MUUCH needed and wonderful icon on our skyline.








It even holds its own vs the classics

Detroit's planned Bedrock-Hudson 912' tower likely getting slashed, mid-construction, as the mixed use program will (likely) not have a large residential component as originally planned.



....2 Supertalls topped out in NYC this week (1 Vanderbilt and Central Park Tower - on the left below).


i appreciate your NYC updates and NYC perspective.

So, i was giving some thought to the new projects going up in Chicago (from the pics above--not related to your post). It wouldn't be fair to compare Chicago to buildings in New York of more extreme massing and luxury. Chicago's buildings are certainly almost as nice as New York buildings of the equivalent massing. But i think they're clearly missing the extra element of "pizzazz" that so many NYC buildings have. Chicago buildings seem (to me) more like an upscale version of Toronto. But, not New York level.

Im interested to know if there are, or what will be the names for the new architectural styles...

Like Steinway tower, pretty unique, not sure what that would be classified as. Glass deco?

Or 30 park place... new deco?

What about 53 w 53, new brutalist? Subtlest... lol. It will be interesting to see what they are seen as when looking back on them.
