I like the top of the building, it's like a modern interpretation of the chrysler building. but the proportions seem to be wrong. with this top the tower should be more slender and taller.

The webcam is working again. Here's a recent photo - looks like the facade on the lower floors is complete and work has begun on the crown section.

The main structure looks shorter than I expected, Hope fully the crown will add some lot heights to it afterall.

Well I've been waiting for the webcam to be fixed, but looks like they aren't going to bother. Looks like we wont get to see the finished product, which really pisses me off. Here's the last shot the webcam took:



You can see the core has topped out since the corebox has been removed.

That's such a beautiful looking building. I know it will look better in real life.

Funny that a small city like Mobile will be getting a 750ft skyscraper while the city I live in, Austin which is much bigger only has a 515ft skyscraper gracing its skyline.

Anyways, good to see this going up in Mobile. The United States needs a skyscraper boom.

I agree, due to the main tower component it doesn't seem it will be its full height. Too stumpy.

Oh, is this the Rate Out talls section?

...

Hello.

Sorry to bring back a rather old topic but I live in Mobile, Alabama and I was just doing some searches and I came across these forums and this topic. This is the tower at today July 4th, 2007, http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/6808/00004532gd.jpg this is a view facing west. The "Crown" will be one of the last things to be put on the tower, aside from the antennas, but i do not know where it will go.. Anyways this picture was taking while I was waiting for several 4th of July Fireworks shows. Btw someone asked when it is supposed to be completed. Well to my knowing it should be done in spring of 2008 if we don't get hit be a hurricane and it damages it.

Cool to see it topped out. This development had shown that smaller cities - hopefully Providence will follow- can have landmark highrises too.
