Not accurate at least based on what images were displayed on their website. I don't feel there was a "bait and switch", still glad to have a new building - it is just unfortunate that they had a vision that was much better and then decided at some point to cheapen it.

Looking at the construction cam, this building looks massive now. It’s got another couple floors to go but I can’t help but thinking it should rise another 10-15 floors. I think the differences in the glass for the tower will become less pronounced as the glass continues to wrap the building.

This tower is really starting to create a nice wall along Water St. It’s also become pretty visible in the skyline from outside the immediate core. Looks good and will look even better covered in the glass.

Recent pictures of the tower have crossed the 20 story level. I would guess that the top steel structure is around 22 or 23 stories.

I was wondering how close this is to being topped out. You can see it from Clybourn even now.

Comparing to the renderings, it appears the structure is topped out already. The exterior will extend one story higher (where the large BMO lettering is on the rendering) but it will probably be just a facade to conceal the mechanicals on the roof.

BMO TOWER | 335 FT | 25 FL | U/C

It doesn’t look topped out at all compared to the rendering looks like it needs a couple more floors.!

Please think before you post. I’ve held back for years … but I’m just not in the holding back mood today. Most of us who read/participate in the forum are looking forward to thoughtful or insightful opinions from other posters. Your posts frequently miss the target of insightful or well thought out. Though I keep updated on the forum daily, this is the biggest reason I rarely post. I don’t care about driving up an artificial “post” count to stroke my ego, so I typically only post if I feel I really have something of quality to add, or a strong opinion to share – such as now. I am honestly not saying this to be attacky, and I do not want to discourage your enthusiastic participation. I simply want to encourage you (and a few others) to really think through (and research, if/when needed) what it is you want to say. When one posts mis-guided, mis-informed and/or otherwise simply ignorant or unfounded opinions, the result is that others will be unlikely to take anything else you say seriously.

In this case, simply take a look at the BMO renderings. Count the floors above the parking plinth. Then check the webcam. What is currently framed out is exactly as RobMKE stated – all occupied floors, minus the one level of additional framing for screening the rooftop equipment and penthouse. (Fortunately, the screenwall will all be wrapped in the same glass curtainwall, giving the appearance of one additional floor.)

You mean posts like when you posted the following...

RETAIL | RESTAURANTS | HOTELS

:-)"

A smiley face doesn't seem to add anything "thoughtful or insightful" to the conversation....

Of course I'm just joking around... I've never actually thought people on here were trying to "drive up" their artificial post count... Just seems like a big waste of time on an obscure skyscraper forum.. My biggest gripe is when I see a dormant thread come to life... I get all jazzed up about some news.... And then find out it's literally someone asking, "Is there any update on this?".... Really.... Don't you think if there was new news we would POST IT HERE!!!!!!! Ahhhhh.... Ok - I'm done complaining...

Ok this was unnecessary, I just looked at the renderings and it looks a bit taller than what the building is now.. sorry just an opinion and I thought for sure that it had a few more floors to go, I counted it right after I posted saw it was 23 floors but kept the post to see if anyone noticed it looked a bit shorter than the renders....

Also kind of annoying how rude some of you guys can be. We’re all here to enjoy buildings and architecture. It’s not that serious and it should be a harmless thread where anyone can post anything on how they feel of a building or what they think of a building and or project.....

I just looked at the webcam and I only count 24 floors completed.
