Everytime i see a comment like this i remember how much I take for granted living right here in the city. Like anything, things get less fascinating when your around them all the time. Its truly something that a picture cant display its mass and magnitude. And when the final stretch of steel goes up and the spire, it will be that much better

Can anyone make a "old/new" picture for comparison. So we can see easily how much it has grown for like past 5 months or so.

Thanks!
