^Yeah I had to look at the model. But it still seems odd to have fake windows all the way up, especially when they will all appear dark at night it will be pretty obvious

They'll just be typical spandrel panels. It's a common practice that nobody will think twice about when they see the finished product. At night, it will just read as solid.

There's actually some incredibly interesting detailing on the facade of this tower. It's quite surprising.

I'm really diggin the facade on this. Some people have expressed reservations about the two-tone glass but I think it will look great. We'll see though.

I love this building. If it were a little taller it would be my favorite building being built in the city.

One question about those images Hydrogen, where do you park your helicopter at night? Always treat us to some of the best angles. Thanks
