This has to be one of the slowest projects I've ever seen. At they rate they are going it would have been quicker to just build a new tower.

With the new cladding, is the sway going to be addressed with anything? I thought that something was going to go at the top, like counterweight balloon type devices?

yeah, this is PAINFULLY slow. But, the impact is being felt. I had to take my mother to airport yesterday and with all of the sun, the reflection off of this thing was great. Plus, this with the JW Marriott will be "new" towers on the skyline that will really help to update the look. I am glad that we will have a tall without limestone.

Amazing shots of the City.

Its So Captivating to see any city from above,

Seeing the grid lit up and laid out across the land really allows one to grasp the size of the city !

These are by far some of the cooler shots i have seen of Indy, in a long time!

Beautiful. The near East side is such a gorgeous part of our city.
I love the steeples sticking up in Lockerbie and Holy Cross.
The Arsenal clock tower really doesn't get the credit it deserves. It is a fine 1860's building. The near east side has so much potential.

Man, they have a way to go on that side of the building. Looking at the cool photos, that is one heck of a climb!

I sent the link to our head of security. One of the other day-shift guards says it looks fake. Huh?

Did you come in through the garage or the building's lobby? It's a bit reminiscent of a guy who parachuted off the roof of Indiana Square about 10 years ago. The stairwell from the top floor restaurant to the roof was never locked until then.

It was one of the hardest infiltrations I've ever done, if that makes you feel any better. The fact that you didn't even know about it till now is a testament to the fact that I caused no harm.

It was totally worth it.

So my question is, how tired were your arms after climbing that high?

I've scaled silos about 1/3 as high and my arms were pretty tired at the top. I think I could make it 31 stories, but my arms would be killing me!

I can't imagine walking up 31 flights of stairs, much less climbing up like that.
