The chandaleer looks very grand in the last photo.
I love the cladding. It looks like in some parts aluminium foil has been put over the glass. Amazing.

I would have to say, this towers best aspect, is its placement. The shape of the tower contours the canal quite well. I really didnt like the design at first, and was somewhat underwhelmed; however, as i see pictures in the latter phases of construction i think the glass looks a bit different. I wish there had been more emphasis on asthetics and a little less of a minimalist emphasis on the facade. None the less it is shaping up better than i had expected.

Any word on when this current setback section will be completed? I heard earlier that it would be finished around Thanksgiving (November 22 or so). I have been waiting patiently for it to begin rising again and can't wait for it to rise fully above the IBM building next door!

Compared to other towers the facade is going on quickly. I will always think this building is awesome, the way the setback levels match the adjacent buildings.
