I think it is 4-5 days. I'm guessing after the next setback it will be 3-4. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Does anyone else notice how AWESOME this part of town will be? We've got five superstar skyscrapers right in a row! Marina City, an original Mies, this new supertall, the Wrigley Building and the Tribune Tower -- ALL IN A ROW!

I think the warped effect of the glass looks really nice. It's abit like looking at the reflection of a building on a lake or canal.
How far has this building got to go?
