Pics from camera phone

My wife got to go up to the roof this afternoon. The first photo is looking NNE. Behind the sandbags and fireworks tubes you can see the elevated portion of the re-cladding. (John Kinman in the pic. He's the media spokesman for the bank concerning Freedom Blast) The second pic is more of the construction stuff.

I have always liked this angle.

OIS is going to look so much better once completed. It will really update our anemic skyline.

I love the progress this building and city are making. Even during the bad economic times... In 5 years, this town will have quite a legit skyline.

Is it really going as slow as it looks? Between July 23rd and Yesterday(August 17th) there has only been what, 4 panels installed? Or is there work going on on the South Facade as well? And has nobody been able to grab a street-level shot? Not being needy, but just wanting to know. We hope to get to Indy here soon. We might even wait for the new Airport to open, but will probably be their sooner than that. I'm just excited to see all the newness in Indy!

I mostly see the work being done on the north facade but, yes, it really is going as slow at it appears. They finished up the middle third of the facade a couple days after the shot I put up on 7/23 and as of late last week, they still hadn't started working on the final third.

They've been spending the majority of their time installing the supports for the glass, and the fins at the top. It doesn't seem like they have too many many on the job.

I don't understand what you mean by this. CorrND posted a "street-level shot" on July 2nd and 23rd. Tell me what you'd like to see and I'll grab it for you.

There is work going on on the North facade as well. I believe they have almost reached the top of the middle section. Once they get to the top they seemt o slow down quite a bit, I am assuming that has to do with the installation of the LCD lighting.

Just an FYI. It's LED, not LCD.

LCD= Liquid Crystal Display
LED= Light Emitting Diode

A new tower could have been built and opened in the time it is taking to "re-skin" this puppy

I meant a NEW street-level shot, of both facades. Any accommodations would be VERY appreciated. It's nice to see the way it will affect the drabness of the skyline.

Such a dramatic change. Very impressive, it's hard to believe what some reclads could do to enhance parts of the skyline. It stands out so much more.

Too bad they are not doing the lower level floors. The skyline will be somewhat different with the addition of the JW Marriott, and possibly the hotel proposed by the Luke. This reclad however is much better than the old look.
