FYI: For the very few people who don't know, the Spire rendering above is inaccurate. Approved/UC version dwarfs this one, and (ironically) doesn't actually have a spire anymore.

It sure does. And I think the new render is much much better then the one the diagram, the flat top and spire is just ugly. Great they did change it.

Thanks for the pics Harryc and Retrograde! I do have a question about the current construction. Are they about to start the actual floors on this tower or are they still in the process of working with the parking garage?
