It will be a welcome addition! I'm excited!

And by the way, I think it's awesome that we have a photo of the "Lot Closed" sign because that means we will have updates from the VERY beginning, right down to the end of its construction.

Do we know roughly when it will be completed or look completed?

For those not aware...RBC is also building their U.S. headquarters tower in Raleigh, NC. Scheduled to break ground in September. At 31 floors and 530' tall, It will become Raleigh's new tallest.

I have been by the lot a few times now, but nothing seems to have changed- not trying to be impatient..just would like to see this start.

That building in Raleigh is going to be brutal...nothing more to say than that..

Looks great. I cannot wait to see these babies rise. Let's just ignore the stupid comments and look forward to our city's world class skyline.

I really like the podium...

I think the podium makes the bulding look smaller but I do like the design of the podiums for both RBC and Ritz.
