Looks like the green roof is being installed on the "sculpture garden", so I'm thinking the greenery on the front and south walls is still in the works.

^Lol. I must say these two have turned out extremely well, though they don't look much like the rendering.

I really think they will look a lot closer to the renderings when the south tower construction elevator finally comes down (Decemberish ??).

Here's a shot I posted earlier that shows how much better the north tower looks sans elevator.

i think what i like about these buildings is that they DO have multiple perceptions based on the angle or distance you're viewing them from.

i'm looking forward to the green walls going up. in addition to them and the green roof terrace/sculpture garden and low-e glass, this project is very quietly a lot greener than most high rises out there. i wonder why they didn't over-publicize it for marketing purposes?

Looks like most of this is painted now and they've started planting the green roof and walls.

Yep. A few shots stitched together. Here's another (600 N LSD's glass looks so nice):
