    Hi everybody,

    I'm back with a new building, again one time in this month ... :D

    I chose you share the Smurfit-Stone Building, or more recently the Crain Communications Building, an iconic skyscraper in Chicago.

    The building was built in 1984. It was designed by Sheldon Schlegman.
    Somebody call it the Diamond, or even more ironically the "Vagina".
    It appears many times in movies. It's 177 meters high and has 41 floors.

    4 stars. Great modern highrise. I'll be hoping for more like this in the future from you. Thanks for sharing!

    Nice mod. This is personally one of my favorite Chicago buildings. The only critique I have would be involving the nightlight rendering. The actually building lights up in a very interesting way with the sides of the diamond top illuminated. Your building doesn't represent this, but overall the mod is pretty well done.

    It looks very similar to the real life version! It has good textures, and the lighting looks to be pretty good. It is all around good.

    Very nice! Would have wished for some slightly brighter nightlights, though.
    I also like the shape of the building :)
