Thanks.
I'm usually not a fan of historical looking buildings, but theres something about this building that fascinates me. Lets hope wikipedia can enlighten me!

nope, that's not the Jewelers Building on the right side of that picture, it's actually the London Guarantee Building, another neo-classical ediffice from the 1920s.

here's a pic:

I'll be damned. It is. I forgot all about the London Guarantee Building. I saw the detailing and automatically thought about Jewelers and didnt question it.

Oops.

I like that view with the river and to the lake. Hopefully in the future, even at floor #96, there will be a 2k footer in the view just saying "HAI 2 U!"

Oh I forgot, this is supposed to be about TTC. Great Updates, I guess.

That city view rendering looks great. The Fordham Spire would look better though if it was offset from the lake closer to the Trump tower.

The Chicago Spire in this render (above) needs the oringinal spire on top and the chinese throwing star base at the bottom with the bridge proposed next to it. Also Aqua should be put into the render, as it is Chicago Spire's sidekick. Trump looks great, the fascade is the best I have seen in a long time.

There haven't been that many photos lately, so here's a bunch. Hopefully you'll find one you like. Just in case you forgot whose building this is, there are helpful hints scatter throughout the pictures.
