Haha, I am now planning my next date with the GF... it will be someplace with a nice view of the lake and skyline.


If only I had a head for that kind of heights.

St. John on the Lake will be the 17th tallest building in Milwaukee slightly edging out Regency House, built back in 1969, in height by only one foot.

Sorry, I dont have any pictures, but I drove past the site today and it was making sure progress. Id say its about 30 feet above ground, with a 20 foot floor and a ten foot one above that. Its going to be a little bigger than i thought in terms of width and depth too. Hopefully now that the foundation is done it will grow even faster.

St. Johns taking shape

I snapped a picture with my phone a few days ago of the progress on St. Johns. It's really starting to get some height on it.

Took this with my phone on April 21st... It's already added several levels since then. I'll try and grab another pic tonight. Sorry for the quality, my point and shoot got some beer poured on it...

It's pretty crazy how fast they can build these buildings. It looks like they're building about a floor a week! Can't wait until it TO's!

Floor a week sounds about right. Looks like the facade is going up. (?) This was in today's fog:











Which also made for at least one neato shot when the sun started going down.

I took a look at the tower from the lakefront and its around the 16th or 17th floor. Also some exterior facade is now up on the lakefront side up to the 8th or 9th floor. I think they are probably going to top off the building by this fall.

Once again I snapped a picture of the progress from Royall Pl during one of my shifts. The pic quality isn't great, but my phone doesn't do night shots too well. Nevertheless, you can count the floors so this should give you some idea.

This is about 10pm last night (july 8th)
