Breakwater Views

Ok, that was a teaser! You must have more pics from that location of other views looking west and south, down and around. Please share. Had I had the opportunity to take pics on such a nice day, I would have filled up my 500mg card. And it looks like you are 30 floors up not 16. I think that building tops out at 21.

Ugh. Well I guess we were bound to have a precast-concrete-made-to-look-like-limestone residential tower eventually.

Article Coming Soon

We're working on an article, complete with a photo recap of what we saw during our visit. Within the next 24 hours we'll give you a behind the scenes tour with everything you've wanted to know (and see) about the BreakWater.

Because the jib from the crane could not reach over to the east side of the building if the west side was topped out. So, the contractor essentially had to finish the east side of the building (anything requiring picks anyway) before they could continue work on the west side.
