Nope. It's still under construction ... and I cannot see tenants moving in for another 3 or 4 months at least.

This has probably been mentioned, but a friend of mine said that his friend's dad is working on the building. Apparently, there will be a 6 story tall atrium somewhere aruond the 20th floor, and will feature a huge indoor garden.

Well exceeded the expectations I had when the renderings first came out. Classy and imposing.
