So did I, I use to live there but I'm still curious like everyone else! But did you get a confirmation email from Soar? I never got a response after my email request to hold a seat. Oh well, I will just create a scene if my name is not on the list when I arrive.

It's fine here as well. You need Macromedia's (now Adobe) Flash to see it. Not much to see though. 3 pictures scrolling back and forth. A little text.

why are the renderings for this building so clearly out of proportion? It's way too short in the renderings- should be almost double the height of the aon center, and should completely tower over everything around it by even more.

If youre talking about the podium that the tower sat on in the first design, its no longer part of the project. The structure will meet street level. This was the last Ive read about it anyway.

It wasn't too terribly long ago that every time my son saw a bulldozer I had to stop the car so we could watch.
