Asymmetry....catch it! The way it's interaction changes with the P.O.V. is great. It mimics or pays homage to it's neighbors in some views, in others it is a monumental monolith or even a ships bow. Could be one for the ages. We'll see how it tops out.

I would guess it's simply a matter of logistics. They're going to need to wait until there's not as much demand for a staging area. I wouldn't expect it to begin for quite some time.

I really hope that the next transfer floors take less then two whole months to complete. I just can't wait till I see Trump rise again. Hopefully I can make my rounds to downtown this weekend while I'm back in town for the SOX game.
