OMG... that photo with the parking structure in the foreground, I went to the website for it to see how much... $340.00 a MONTH for "discount' monthly parking... 340 a month... good god almighty... I cannot imagine paying that much to park anywhere for a whole year... much less a month... New Yorkers are nuts to pay those expenses to live there... I don't think anyone here in Phoenix would pay 10 cents to park anywhere... lol

NYC is a city, Phoenix is a suburb.

LOL... a suburb of what? Tucson? Flagstaff? Well I suppose there is only 4.5 hours to Vegas, 6.5 hours to LA, 8.5 hours to Albuquerque... Here Glendale, Scottsdale, and Avondale qualify as 'suburbs'...

[keep in mind that there are 4.2 million here in the Valley of the Sun and there is 2 hours of empty desert between the Phoenix metro area and Tucson, the next city of significance south of here (with about 1 million in its metro area)...]

Wow great renderings of the roof and parapet. The antenna is really going to set this building off when completed...Exactly how many feet is the parapet s from the glass wall tip to the actual building roof bottom? Looking at these pics, you can really see why they didn't put an observation deck up there, would be way too crowded with all that equipment!

The parapet is 33'4" from top of roof slab to the top of stainless steel panels.

That seems inexpensive to me...for NYC. 10 years ago, I paid 185 month in downtown DC and rates in downtown Baltimore are over 200...

Nope, not by a long shot. You can guess the topping out of the Roof, by looking at the 4 Triangles on the side of the Building. They all have to go to a direct point, so there's still a long way to go until it reaches roof height anyway.

True... and Tucson seems so little by comparison (and I grew up in Findlay Ohio, pop 38,000 surrounded by 30 miles of corn in every direction... Yeah, Findlay, the place in that Dominoes parmesan bites commercial... LOL)

And why do people drove so ridiculously slow in Tucson? All our main arterial roads in Phx are mostly 45 or 50 mph and everyone goes 60... in Tucson the roads are signed for 35 or 40 MPH and everyone drives 25... and there are endless traffic lights... grr...
