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.

^ Add in the GP2 site, and its looking like we will get a very nice South Loop cluster

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.

Now imagine OGP 2 and 1000M... I get chills just thinking about it.

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

Hmmmmmm... those last few pictures make me like the building a lot less right now. I'm refraining judgement until fully glassed up and after it gets a nice window wash but... idk... something seems very off from the street view
