Tall enough to make the building almost 700 feet.

That's great for Cincinnati. It is a building that will have an amazing impact to the skyline of the city. On the other hand... I hope there are more projects going up around the city. I was there last year during the summer and from what I've seeing... that city is falling apart. A lot of abandon buildings and some of the impoverished areas of the city... scary. Every city has a ghetto... but Cincy got one of it's own.

It's very exciting but I have to admit that the crown looks like a giant slinky.

The carew tower looks stunning (reminds me of Rockefeller Plaza too). Queen City Square looks great. Didn't know Cincinnati had such a beautiful skyline. Congrats!

Any progress on this beauty in the making? I saw the render I didn't think to much off it... But damn on the last photo. This will be a winner!

Crown going up. Shot taken today from the webcam:



For comparison, this was the tower's progress around this time 1 year ago:
