Well both were done by SCB so that might explain some of the similarities, but they're still two separate projects.

Any confirmations on this one, richardson? Is it a plain (glassy) box all the way to the top, or are there some surprises still?

No, it's not a plain glassy box.

Thanks, and that's good too hear. Not that all new boxes are bad, but I would much rather prefer something a bit different.

Interesting. Very interesting. What, when, where and how? I guess "what" doesnt apply.

From the look of the rendering relative to 2 Pru, this building must be around 1000-1200 feet.

That cat is out of the bag, sort out. I don't recall a spire however. Actually, much of the top looks different from that, but if that's what they're showcasing then maybe that is it.

If it's not accurate then there's no point in doing it. Unless I see otherwise, I think that this design shown is an earlier version.

^That and the rendering is so screwed up that there isn't much I can do with it. I could chamfer the western roofline, but that's about it without any other reference. I really need some concrete numbers. Right now, there's to much up in the air.

And post all requests in the main model thread. I don't have time to pour through every thread in the section looking for tips.

So, we have to sit tight and wait for the public release of MO's rendering.

Very nice looking. I like the suddel Mandrian fan ecthed into the glass. This is a nice modern bit of tallness that will be a welcome addition to the skyline.
