Those are good chunks of steel mi amigo. Great pics. I think I'll drive up there this Saturday and take a stroll through Downtown.

Anyone know why the cladding from the north and south sides reaches out past the vertical wall of the east side? I don't recognize that element from the renders, and it looks odd.

And the last one here. They all show the cladding extending out all the way up.

Weird, I guess I just never paid attention to that aspect before, but seeing the tower in person recently the protrusion really stuck out (pun intended). Hopefully it looks better integrated when the cladding is complete, because as of now it just looks like they picked the wrong size panel.

Sorry, I havent been on in a while, been so busy I havent been able to post many updates either, but Im going to try getting a few up tonight in the following posts!

Booooo yaaa!!! Looks like we are now at lvl 45 in da box. Half of the form work had jumped this morning, and by the time I passed by in the evening, the other half on the 110 side jumped, and now floor 42 is the top floor exposed under the form work! If you look at the pic from 6/1 up above (morning shot) you can make out the 40th floor as being the top floor under the form work.

When you consider that on 6/1 it had just jumped, it works out to about 2 floors in the last 11-12 days for the core to rise!

I have the pics from today from my phone to illustrate this, and then Ill look into downloading paint shop, or install Photoshop to resize.
