A street-level look at 600 North Fairbanks

Click to enlarge

We’ve heard a lot over the past year about 600 North Fairbanks‘ place in the Streeterville skyline; Blair Kamin called it “quietly elegant,” and Yo’s own Barry Pearce dubbed the finished product “lean and serene” as construction was wrapping up last year.

Here’s a look at one aspect of the building that’s gotten somewhat less attention: the street-level facade and entryway. The curved glass wall fits the intersection of Fairbanks Court and Ohio Street well, but it’s hard to ignore the low-rise brick buildings on the same block.

What do you think: too jarring, appropriately modern – or somewhere in between?
