Thanks for the diagram, CULWULLA. It really helps us understand the progress being made! You must be the greatest skyscraper fan out there!

Once more nice photos, Retrograde!
I just have wondered about this one:

Actually, that's an artifact from stitching two vertical photos together. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have posted the picture since it does not accurately represent the building. I was trying to capture Waterview’s increasingly assertive presence along Wacker Drive and couldn't do that in a single frame.
