The bottom 3 or 4 brackets were left in place, looks like the next ones are anchored from the top as the gallery climbs.

Expanding the deck/plaza - this is on the South side, at the same level as upper Wacker on the North.


Ground level (the overexposed brightness in the back is the river walk)


Looking up

I was going to ask about the south plaza expansion. I like how they went with diagonal beams, kinda replicating the diagonal supports on the northside. Are these on the south going to be exposed? I think I remember them being covered with paneling in the early renders but not sure if those were the final design?

Form follows function - or - cantilevers are a bitch.

NICE. I love how you can see it taking shape from what you can see in the rendering. I think the biggest portion is right now up to around 36 or 37 stories built.

I don't know if I missed it lately, but in case it wasn't mentionned, the new webcam is pretty cool. A gigapixel type of camera, can even view other construction sites in the vincinity

So much for the "glass will be super late" fear mongering... People said it would start showing up in February and here were are with one day left in the month and it's showing up.
