Here are a few screen grabs from the video on the webpage for this project. Looks like they are about 8 floors above the top of the 'notch' on the south face of the building, so by my count another 25 floors or so to go:

Thanks! I've never been to Nottingham, though I did catch a glimpse from the window of a train once (and I've always been a fan of your most famous native son ) - I'm sure it's a pretty nice place to live too!

I actually have been halfheartedly continuing with my 432 time lapse (though there hasn't been enough visible progress to bother posting an update lately)... By sheer dumb luck 252 has risen straight up into the frame of my video, so I will probably keep adding frames as it grows (and continue to document my ever-shrinking view of the western sky )....

252 Comes into view about 20 seconds in :

I hope that horrible blue is just a protective cover on the grass....

You can clearly see what the glass looks like with the film off to the left...

Here's a rendering from SOM that I hadn't seen before...to my eyes, this makes the white parts of the facade look much "whiter", and the clear parts much less tinted, than the uncovered sections actually look:

Yea I hope that's the final look of it but as of now it looks like a greenish blue cladding.

Here are a couple pics from a few minutes ago that show the glass fairly clearly. As others have pointed out, the windows that look VERY blue are still covered with protective plastic. Click on pics for full size:

252 East 57th its rising quite fast now. The tower is at around 33rd floor and it already stands out and looks tall. Now imagine adding another 26 floors.
