The glass is a bit greener than I thought it would be—it looks damn good though

Can't wait to see what the winter garden glass looks like!!

Does Essex own that garage? It be good for them for protected west views, but that would be a great lot to develop.

Yeah - this is only a few floors away from being half way done regarding floor count. It'll probably be topped out in late spring/early summer.

I think once there's spring sunlight it'll look a bit more airy. It's def lighter than WPW.

That parking garage serves E-W University, and is managed by Impark (http://parking.impark.com/chicago-parking-lot-99). I'm sure they can be convinced to part with it for the right price, assuming the university has student/faculty parking elsewhere, or plan on reserving the rights to it on any new development on that lot (ala Holy Name with OCS)

I really hope they do some form of lighting on those fins on the north and south side. And not just the winter garden portion. It would really make this one stand out.

I'm really digging the slim profile of this tower. Its going to look amazing from Grant Park when completed.

agree the glass in that spot will look good and break up some color-monotony
