1353 West Fulton is a 26-story residential skyscraper designed by SOM.   It sports a glassy, gridded facade, two-story townhouses on the 20th floor, and a pool on the 19th floor amenity deck, which is a nice change from many recent Chicago buildings that have plopped the pool on top of the noisier and less private parking podium.
