Though a little wavy, that glass is A+! Much better looking than the renderings depicted. Going love the enhanced Christmas feel next year when looking at this juxtaposed with the (former) CNA bldg

I kinda wish the glass matched the old Essex in more, that was one of the better parts or this tower was how well it blended with that in my opinion.

Presumably that bright green on the columns is just fireproofing or something, and those will have stainless steel cladding?

[EDIT]
Some kind of painted sealant - yes it will be covered by cladding.

I like how it pays homage to the old Essex in form/architecture, but contrasts it in color. And it's a nice shade of green!

I don’t know that a sign that reads quickly as “rent sex” is the best marketing.

I did not expect to see that vertical, green opaque glass in between the metal columns. Very nice touch. Thanks for posting, Harry
