Nice set Le Baron...not only is Essex one of my favorites, I think it aesthetics are enhanced by its location

Speaking of detailing, it does look like the bottom of the tower better reflects the neighbor tower and the old Essex building. Any reason it's not continued all the way up? (referring to floors 6-9)

Along with NEMA and SoMi, S Loop starting to have quite the impressive cluster to anchor southern end of Grant Park

Almost feel like I'm going to get shot in the back of the head, but looking at Harryc's photos, can't help but feeling like "I love a nice simple glass box"


The gruesomeness is a reference to 1984...They broke me.

€$$€X turned out like a gem and Nema looks like an absolute monster. I Can't even imagine how sweet her taller twin sister will look like!

Looking really good Southside

Many a southern sprawl new cities would consider this south Loop pic the Creme de la Creme and proof that the north is dying a fast death if they had these buildings in their core.



Where as I, I love that pic of the south loop looking south over Grant Park.

I just Cant wait till they cover the tracks in a couple hundred years.

I'm glad they continued the verticality of the silver steel beams. I was suspecting this when they started adding the "bump" and am now glad its visually confirmed lol.

Such a quality addition in this cycle.

The top floor of vision glass is the top penthouse floor. The spandrel glass covers up the mechanical space.

Taken today. Not any major developments in the picture but it was the first time I've seen the building live in a few weeks and damn does it look good from all angles.

The metallic detailing on the sides is gorgeous now that I can see it completed(roughly). South Loop straight killed it
