Recommendation: meh 4.84 / 5 from 19 reviews

This is MY first LEGO set just for me. I've helped my son through the years and my grandson recently with their LEGO sets but it's nice to have one only for me - selfish! I lived in Chicago for a year so it has been lovely reminiscing as I've constructed the set. It's not been too challenging and it has encouraged me to get more from the Architecture series. Next up is the Guggenheim.

LEGO fans who live in Chicago, list Chicago as one of their favorite cities, or just appreciate design will really like that this LEGO set shows off some of the city's great landmarks. It's a wonderful tribute to a city that really does have some excellent architecture. The instruction booklet is full of information and photographs about each landmark and the city in general, and we think that will be a lot of fun for older fans to read through, but there's a lot there for even younger LEGO builders to read and discover.

Recommendation: meh 3 / 5 by Michael Kindness

When I first saw this set, I liked the mix of building styles, and could tell that the sloping Hancock Center would use unique construction. All of those elements lived up to my expectations, but I found some negatives that I wasn't expecting, like the bright color of Big Red, and the lackluster DuSable Bridge.
