Well there’s a lot of odd or unattractive features in architecture of any era. Fire escapes on ornate buildings, Mechanical penthouses , service doors. You just got to look past this stuff. The pool overhang seems to be in an appropriate area, plus the contrast in color allows the rigorous structural grid appear to continue on uninterrupted as if the pool overhang is nothing.

This thing is a giant from pretty much every angle. Can't wait for it to be fully painted and glassed up. Looks like it is almsot 700 feet tall now!

Looks like they’ve hit the first northeast setback.

This cluster in the South Loop is really gaining some strength with this building. It's crazy how different approaching the city from the South and South West has gotten in recent years. It's gone from a small bump in the skyline to an entirely new section that I can imagine the South Loop centering around as these megadevelopments nearby and other big lots get built on. One can almost visualize the buildings rising up around this grouping and creating another peak on par with the others!

Running on the south side of the lakefront path, I couldn't help but notice, now with NEMA, Bennett, and Vista, that at least from this vantage point, there will no longer be distinct peaks in the Chicago skyline. It will be instead like a comb, with many juts of taller buildings, forced through distance and perspective to rival the Hancock Center and 401 N Wabash.

It's a remarkable sight.

This is a beast in the skyline now. So much wider than OBP and Vista. It will have a huge impact.
The tower crane right now is probably around 800ft?

NEMA is a brand of apartments by Crescent Heights. They have one in San Francisco, and Boston.

The name still confuses me though because for the San Francisco one it makes sense because it starts for New Market and it's in the Mid-Market neighborhood but for Boston/Chicago it doesn't
