Am I missing something from this article below???? It stated that this tower is getting a 24 story haircut from 30 to 6 - but it looks to be around 19 or so stories up at this point.

I get that it's old news, it's my confusion from the article to the fact that it is not going to only be six stories.

Expo Phase II is getting a haircut. Phase I is currently being built as you said, staying at 26 stories.

Phase I is approved at 26 floors, and is about 2/3rds built. Phase II originally included a tower component, which was scrapped, and is now approved at 6 floors.

Great photos and perspectives of the tower! Nice to see the use of lots of warm colored brick. Its a great color for a building given our climate.

Once Alia gets going (crosses fingers) driving across the 3rd Ave bridge in Nordeast will be pretty awesome, with its mini pyramidal skyline.

Looks like this will be the perfect view for all phases of the expo, Eleven, and Alia!

I'm climbing on roofs to get fresh angles for you people, so when I die, just say a few kind words.

Thanks for the extra effort Bapster! But, be careful, cause I really want to see your shots of Eleven, Gateway et al as they rise and change the skyline!

Thank you very much! And yeah, I was exaggerating because that roof is flat. I am sure I will be around a long time to find some new photo spots
