There are but not many since first the site is covered up pretty good so its hard to stick a camera in therein hopes for a perceptible shot (which i havet ried multiple times to do ). Second, for now the webcams gives us the best view anyway. But I'm positive when this baby starts rising above the crowd there will be many pictures

I"ve posted pictures that I've taken. But there is only one place you can get pictures from and it only works for very small lenses like Iphones.

I might go by tomorrow and try getting some. I'm only in the area on Sundays but its a bit out of my way.

This has to be one of the cleanest and best organized sites I've ever seen. You've got to look hard to even see a scrap of anything lying around. If you sweat the small stuff, the big stuff takes care of itself.

I evaluate the places I get my car fixed the same way. If the shop is not reasonably orderly and clean, I go elsewhere.

I guess next set of steel cages will be visible from the street once they pour that street level deck.

Btw. isn't someone said once they will be building that glass cube first? Looks like they haven't even started there and tower is already at the street level.

It looks like the space where the cube will go is now used as a storage space. I guess it would be reasonable to first finish the street level slab around the crane tower so they can move storage there and start working on the levels below the cube. Just my 2 cents.

Sounds good. They will get nice amount of space around the crane once they pour the slab since the tower is pulled in from the street.

The advantage of fixed webcams is that they are perfect for time lapses:

that is, until they move them.

Good update, I think it's easier to wait until there is more above the fence than the crane.

Yes, that is true. But two things. The fence around it is quite high and will likely block the 1st floor or 2. So we'll have to wait for it to get higher.

Worse still, at some point they'll put wind screens on this sucker and then we won't see much of anything. We really have to hope for a crane cam

Thanks. Yes, the floor forms above the scaffolding are at street level. So they are progressing quickly but I think it will still be more than a week before that gets poured.

It was exactly a week between photos.
