Wow! So tall in this picture. Way beyond my expectations.

While this is a vast, vast improvement over the dilapidated parking garage that used to occupy this site, I'm a little disappointed in the end result.

Unlike the Trump, where the reality far outstripped the medicore rendering, this one looks much less impressive than what I thought looked like a very promising rendering. And the sand colored cladding they are placing on the riverside plaza looks very cheap; it's a jarring contrast with the more classical look of the rest of the riverside spaces.

I really like the height, though.

These are from 11/5, but no one has updated this one recently. Nothing really new, but a better idea of what the final night product might look like.

I drove past a few days ago, and I must say that this is a beautiful building. It's really fitting to have on the river, too. And hydro, where did you shoot that last picture of yours from?

Does anyone have any info on the status of LEED certification?
I know they were shooting for Gold, and had gotten the building pre-certified (presumably under CS).

Just wondering if they have gone through post-construction commissioning, or if it's still too soon for that.

^ Salt domes - I'm not sure if there's a more technical word for it.
