It really towers (hah, pun) over Essex now. Will this be the final crane jump for this project?

^No, there will be one more jump. The top of the crane right now is roughly the top of the building. Five more sections need to be added to the crane in the final jump.

Is 607 ft still the official height for this? I thought I remember BVictor saying this was probably going to be around 620 ft.

There are at least twelve recently completed or under-construction buildings in that shot that didn't exist five years ago. South Loop rises fast.

After the crane jump, I can now see it standing out well above the neighboring buildings in the skyline. If that's at the final height of the building, it'll provide a nice bridge between the Loop and those towers on Roosevelt.

The south facing offices in the Standard Oil Building are going to have better views in the near future
