I like the name Museum Park but I will always call it South Loop

I'm counting 39 floors for the largest section which means it's about half way to being TO'd.

If the final height of Essex will be just below the boom of the tower crane, goddamn will it make a hell of an impact! It's going to do wonders drawing the center of gravity of the skyline further south.

If 1000M gets built and the second phase of OGP is fulfilled, the South Loop on its own will have as big of a skyline as any city in the US outside of maybe Philly and obviously NYC. Incredible

The final height of Essex will be just below the very top of the current tower crane height. The mast of the crane is currently at an elevation around 580'. The top of the parapet will be 607'.

Great pics Harry! I love how slender OGP looks from Grant Park, but then is much girthier when viewed from Indiana. Similar deal as OMP, although OGP pulls it off much better. OMP is too unbalanced with the setbacks too disproportional to its height.

Looks like about two floors added between BVic's pics on 4/22 and Solar's pics on 4/30. OGP is shooting skyward like a weed!
