^Those photos of yours above would suggest that the angle of the facade is changing again. Am I seeing things?

Have we reached the final mini-setback?

I love the facade of this tower. In the day it's nice and reflective and at night it takes on an ominous, dark glow...so sexy.

Yea, for me it is one of the few towers that looks better when built then it does in the render.

Thank you for the wonderful compliment; it is even more appreciated coming from a photographer as good as yourself.

I really love this building. I think if it where 20 more stories if would look much better in the skyline. It just looks like it should be a little taller. I guess that's just my opinion.

Impressive construction speed. And that with only one tower crane.
