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

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.

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 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

Not everyone likes a bunch of gaudy multicolored neon lights, like an Asian city or fucking Vegas.

Yeah, in Chicago "lighting" consists of uplighting highlighting the sickest architectural features of each building. In other cities the lighting itself is the attraction because the architecture it is attached to is so gaudy or bland. Who needs crazy displays when you can just light up the antennae with seasonal colors like they do with the Sears.

Im also interested if they are going to paint the cube or cover it in cladding. I would imagine a metal or aluminum would light up better like sears/hancock/trump.
