Nice tower. Glass looks good, I like the curved shape.

Excellant video and a great update!
A picture is worth a thousand words, but a video is worth a thousand pictures. Nice job on that. I look forward to seeing this rise in the near future.

It looks like it *IS* rising - as of those last photos, the core looks to be complete up to floor 6 and about a quarter to a third of the steel for floor one is in place.

Nice project but they should have built it at the CNA Tower's spot and demolished that red monster.

Never! The CNA tower is an incredible peice of work. The red is really distinguishing the southern loop's skyline view from Grant Park. I don't get why only sleek blue is the only thing somebody can love. Yeah, we've got almost five of them now (trump, Legacy, Roosevelt, OMP, 330 on the Park). Why not keep a little spice to make the skyline different than say, Vancouver's...
