I attached a few pictures of the building for you. The exposed concrete is what we have left. Its about 40 floors or so that are still in Mexico ( 22 units per floor).

The west tower helps keep the east tower from looking out of place. It would be nice if towers three and four happen some day!

^ Agreed. Ain't no way in hell people won't be clamoring to get a unit with those kinds of views, except for in the worst of economic slumps such as the one we are currently in.

In the middle photo above, what are the little wheeled doo-hickies supposed to be doing on the side of the building?

Are you referring to the window-washing crane?

Possibly. I'm not sure what that small crane is. If it is a window washing crane, is it permanent?
