I'll take you up on that. Odd thing for me will be seeing some of the people that help make the decision to let me go from the bank. It will make for an awkward elevator ride. :-)

My desk on the 12th floor faces East above the garage. Evey 5 minutes or so the floor vibrates from them drilling, etc, They are on 11. When they are at my floor I will close the blinds. I don't want to look at him and I don't want him looking at me. :-)

I've taken a few pics of the progress so far:

It's visual impact in Mass ave is really shaping up; a small part of the 3 Mass contruction can also be seen.

This was taken from my office, it shows the progress on the South and East ends. The mounting of support brackets on the the East side of the building can be seen being installed.

This doesn't really demonstrate the progress of the building, but I think it's kind of cool.

I dio not like the different "strip" on each side. Makes it look unfinished.

How much darker is the inside of that building now that it has a double set of tinted windows?

They are taking the interior window layer out after putting up the "outer" layer of windows - so there are not two layers of tinted windows to look through.

I do think for a boring "box," the redesign is about as good as you can get

Mmm, wish that the CCB would get a makeover. Could not help myself with that thought!

The CCB interiors are disgusting as well. That building needs to be long term imploded and the site redeveloped.

What I'd like to see for the MSA site is, in part, abou5 500-600,000 square feet of office space, with the city anchoring the development by leasing about 250K to start shifting work out of the CCB.

Next up, when there is a comprehensive transit system you can do what Chicago did and move your county jail and main criminal courts complex out of downtown. I'd relocate it to a reclaimed brownfield on the near west side not too far off a stop on the new airport light rail line.

Convert the old city hall into a civil courts building (may not be big enough, so another possibility is a true "thin headquarters" for the mayor's staff and such). Shift other employees further out into field offices, and you can then whack the building and redevelop the property, as well as the jail properties.

I'd like to see a proper "city hall" type structure, which possible the old city hall could function as. Otherwise, I'd rather see city functions integrated into proper mixed use urban developments rather than concentrated a huge, monolithic, "government complex"

Are both of the darker glass "strips" on each of the north and south facades towards the west end of the building? I'm having a hard time telling from the previously posted pictures over the past few pages, but it looks like they might be. Makes me wonder if the entire west side of the building will be the dark glass, with portions of it "sneaking" around onto the main north/south faces. If that's the case, that might look pretty good. At least it would be an interesting attempt by the architects to try and spice up a glass box, so I'd give them credit for that.

Though if it does end up just being two dark, random strips...that's just weird. And I agree, it would look unfinished.

It does have a black stripe on the NW side of the building as well. They don't have any of the new facade installed on the west side of the building at present, but according to this old rendering I have, it will be blue.
