Does this push the height past 900' if it's true that Nema is getting her cube?

I'm not going to believe it till i see it with my own two eyes!

I think the top of the cube is 896' but could be wrong

they should do a series of smaller and smaller cubes to hit 900 and then have a banana or a cow on top of that

CUBE ALERT!!! RED ALERT! CODE CUBE!

I'm so happy right now. I knew it deep down inside. Ahh, it's going to look so perfect and futuristic.

I'm really interested in how they are going to do the lighting mechanics for the crown.

harry, amazing close-ups. we are counting on you for cube updates!

KWill, so am I!!! City won't let vista illuminate the blow through floor so im curious what the restrictions on this are, especially with it's colorful neighbor. would be pretty cool to see it change colors at night.. like, really cool.

What is most interesting about that picture is not the cube, but the fact that the glass ended up catching the concrete before they were completely topped out...

I'm sure there's an ordinance being written if one doesn't exist to contend with any interactive or creative lighting for NEMA. Chicago's lighting is the most homogeneous, discreet and boring of any city in it's class.

I was told to expect something similar with WPE.

The cube is so awesome. Great job by all on updating us. One of my favorite architectural features going right now out of any project.

The fact that they are making it out of reinforced concrete instead of steel makes it so much cooler
