Most excellent shots, Harry. The last one made my laptop sputter.

What an amazing cycle. Ferris Bueller would need two days off.

Hahaha, that got me to chuckle.

Seriously though, that last shot is really crisp!

Picture from a few weeks ago. I feel like Nema and Essex complement each other just perfectly from certain angles.

That's a super cool perspective there, Alpaca. Never thought about how they'd really help layer the South Loop's skyline when looking from the Northwest

I'm starting to wonder if they ran out of money... they never finished painting it

How many top floors are mechanical or non-habitable. Depending on the angle it looks as though it could be anywhere from 7 to 11 floors. I'm definitely no builder but it seems like a lot of added floor space for the mechanics.

Only one tube forms the penthouse which appears from the outside to be 5 floors. It's actually only like two or three mechanical floors and the top two "floors" are actually just a screen that hides the window washing equipment.

That's partially correct. The top two "screened" floors also have mechanical. Just go back several pages and you can see the massive unit there. The window washing equipment is on top as seen in the photo above.

I don't think anyone has posted anything here regarding the taller, twin sister. I imagine it is awhile away. NEMA has A LOT of units to fill. Essex and the Paragon were recently completed. 1000M is supposed to start next month. There is a lot of competition in the South Loop at the moment.

Put here's to hoping it crosses the imaginary supertall line!

And why the hell is this still half unpainted?

I thought we'd been over this many times. The developer has no plans for making tower two a twin
