great pic, undoubtedly you have the best location to take pics of 340.

Bvic, thanks for the Emporis update and posting the render/finished product. After seeing the comparison between the two, I'm really glad the glass is the color that it is. Not that the render is bad, it just has too much of an ordinary blue. As for the real building, I love the tealish color. It seems unique and adds some flair to it and perhaps even some tropical flavor. Even though this tower has already gotten lost in the shuffle amidst our flury of construction, it's still a great building and we are lucky to have it.

Wow, they really punked out on the parapet! It's a good 10' shy of what we were promised. I, too, miss the addition of the awning, for lack of a better word, that was supposed to be near the top of the tower.
