What's at the top? Some sort of common space or fancy townhouses in the sky?

Essex really making a splash from Lolla this year. Much more noticeable than, say, NEMA.

Totally agree, it appears to be much more visible from the confines of Grant Park. NEMA/OGP does have pretty tall neighbors though and it sort of blends in with them. Next year however, considering how much NEMA/OGP is going to tower over both OMP and The Grant/OMPW, I think its going to be just as eye catching as EOTP if not more so.

Probably not great. Pretty likely this won't be making it this market cycle, IMHO

^ Interesting. Last I heard sales were flagging for 1000M. Lets wait and see if their plans for a 2019 groundbreaking come to fruition.

^I've been thinking the same thing. I hope it gets somthing similar to Legacy, but all four sides of the crown.

Essex was 10/10 until that clunky crown/massing on the top took shape. It looked to stretch skyward previously whereas it's a bit clunky now...still gorgeous tho.

I somewhat agree. I absolutely loved everything about this tower until the boxy hat it was given. In looking at the renderings, it shouldn't come as a surprise because they definitely show the outcropping. However, the renderings are all at an angle and not from Le Baron's coveted perch. It might just be this angle that I don't absolutely love.

All that said, it's a minor complaint. The tower itself is beautiful and I love where it's located.

What a town. Imagine the impact Jahn’s 800 footer would have.
