^Well there are still 9 more high rises that have yet to be released. A supposed "insider" said that the original plans have been heavily modified and that there are several tall buildings yet to come.

Besides that there are some low-mid rise sections, the market, and an elementary and middle school.

^Well (as I recall) people won't start moving in until summer, but by December I would think that most of the exterior glass work will be finished at this rate.

SolarWind also has a nice pic of Chandler's glass. Too bad the sides of the building (like Regatta) suck, but I suppose they will be sort of obscured by future towers.

340 OTP keeps looking better and better. I love how when you're driving north on LSD, it looks like it's directly in front of you.

Downtown high-rise blaze contained

November 2, 2006
FROM STNG WIRE REPORTS

A temporary heating unit on the 26th floor of 62-floor high-rise under construction sparked a blaze downtown Thursday afternoon.

A still and box and an EMS Plan 1 were called for the fire, 340 E. Randolph St., at 3:18 p.m., and they were both secured at 3:40 p.m., according to Fire Media Affairs Assistant Director Eve Rodriguez. The entire building, which only had construction workers inside, was evacuated, said Rodriguez.

No one was injured, said Rodriguez. The building was "new construction,'' she said.

“I don’t see any fire but I see a lot of smoke,’’ Doris Wilson, the doorperson at 360 E. Randolph St., which is next door, said. "There are a lot of fire trucks,’’ she said.

Police were notified of the fire about 3:30 p.m., according to Central District Lt. Anthony Liace.
