I really wish SCB was still doing these two new towers if only for the sake of diversity in the design.

'Density at any cost' should not be the mantra of these boards. 'Good design' should be.

Sorry, I may have spoken too soon. I think a small part of the western side of Sears may be visible though. For all practical purposes though, I agree with you.

No problem. I would not complain if anyone could photoshop that picture of what it will look like maybe 5 to 7 years from now.

I was over there yesterday and asked one of the construction workers where they were at currently, and I was told that the core is about at floor 62 and the decks thenselves are at ablot floor 60. They need to get to 65, so we're almost there.
