I wonder when are they going to cover the concrete colums at the base of the tower?

when I went on a tour of the inside they said those will be covered in stainless steel. I think they are waiting until near the end of construction so they dont get beat up.

One of the best pics that show how TTC relates to the river and how it will be free from obstruction viewing south for eternity. This is just an awesome location for said tower.

Using the long term, generational approach to investment [see the Kennedy clan holdings on Wolf Point as an example], the view that would get the best return in the long haul is a south and east view in this building. IMO

I believe not more then knowing that you're city's tallest to be tower has an Spanish speaking architect, and Chicago's and America's best Architectural studio designed World's TALLEST tower ... but it is not being build in their (and yours) city ...
