Look at the picture....

What's going on in the middle?

One guy has his head missing, then to his left there is some head and shoulders floating about.

In order to get that wide of a picture, I had to blend a few photos together. Obviously, some people moved between shots. I was wondering how long it would take before someone mentioned that. Good catch.

The pictures are real. They were assembled into a panoramic photo that represents the view one would have from the northwest corner of the site. Aside from a few workers moving around, that is how the building looked on July 11.

If you are talking about the building to the far left it is
77 West Wacker Drive formerly known as the R.R. Donnelley Building

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/77_West_Wacker_Drive

Hope that is the building you were referring to.

They moved the framework up, looks like the second floor of the core maybe or the double height of the lobby, regardless this puppy is about to soar.
