Yes it is, it really does make a difference, it pops out with that new glass and is distinguished more now. I really like this idea and how Indy is going along with it.

Has anyone else noticed how prominent the tower is in the view from Lucas Oil Stadium? I don't really think it stood out as much when it was black.

It's fighting for attention now, whereas before it played more of a skyline-filler role. The new glass is going to look great on sunny days from inside the stadium.

This shot is far away, but does a good job of illustrating the tower's placement in the skyline.

Not sure maybe someone has some info on this one. I hope it gets some sort of redesign. I would not care if it were 50' shorter, just anything.

I noticed a real difference in the look of the skyline from Harding St./37 yesterday. I really think this will help Indy (almost) look like a whole new city.

Seeing this design come together, it looks so much better than the renderings, and the rederings looked good. Now only if they would have changed the base. I guess it's better than nothing. Now only if AUL could get a reclad and Indy would really look like a new city.

Do you think the top two or three floors will be set back slightly? It seems to look like that from the picture. Once they take off the previously added upper trim structure (that white fence like thing), it could make the top look slightly tapered as it gets up to the top few floors. I think that would be good. I like it more and more - the closer they get to finishing it. I definitely agree the bottom 5 floors will look strange with that modern top above the old 70's bottom though.

Is there to be a difference from the side panels vs the middle?

No you are not crazy. Living in Fountain Square has changed my sense of direction.

It is indeed the South facade. Fixed.

Good call!

One column of windows on each side of the building is black. On the south side they have the black column already done. They are just starting on the black column on the north side.

I don't believe so. If i remember correctly the west and east sides will have a thin column of black as well and the rest will be the blue glass.

A couple of pics I snapped:

South Facade (why is there black on the sides on the south, but not on the North?):

There is black on the north facade as well. They have just recently started installing it and are only 7 floors up so far. Here are a few pics I took out of our dirty office window just a few minutes ago.

I'm back! After 10 weeks of trying to find a job I start Sept 22nd. I will again be in Indiana Square. Instead of the first floor I'll be on 12 with a nice NE window view of 3 Mass.
