Everybody loves SkyBridge, the pioneering slightly deconstructionist residential tower recently featured in an episode of HGTV’s House Hunters program.

Arkadia topped out a couple of weeks ago, and it has one heck of a commanding presence along the Kennedy Expressway. When complete, Arkadia (765 West Adams Street) will have 350 apartments and rise 33 stories into the sky. It was designed by FitzGerald Associates, which describes the building this way:
In the close-up photos of the parking garage, you’ll notice that a white metal framework has been installed. This is presumably to support the artistic features that are supposed to hide the cars from the public. Last we heard, it was going to be Greek-themed art that would be illuminated from within by the headlights of the cars moving around inside the garage.
