What's going to set this tower apart is going to be the glass in my opinion!

Nice pic.

Does that mean this is a curtain wall glass system?

Also, semi-daily update:

This is 100 percent curtain wall.

Those are embeds. They are put in by the precast sub in their shop. Glazing contractor supplies them since they have them engineered for their unitized curtain wall system.

^Thanks for the knowledge. So much more efficient than a hammer drill/tap-con into concrete.

I like the white between the windows a lot. Should set these towers apart nicely.

Oh man, I'd frame that last shot, Solar. Beautiful vantage point, even if has dead trees, Christmas lights, and construction equipment. Drooling.

The trees are not dead - they are sleeping - happens every year around this time.

Riverwalk is progressing nicely and it looks like glass is going to be going up in the front soon

I am trying to post a picture but the site isn't letting me?

Anyway here is a picture of the first units of tower glass set this morning. Looks great in my opinion.

Link seems to be good. If you're posting/using imgur from mobile sometimes it's a bit funky.

Nice pic and it's gonna be a handsome tower.

Thanks for posting. I wasn't using from mobile. I just uploaded it from my computer as I normally do. None of the buttons (i.e. bold, underline, "mountain and sun" icon, emoji's, etc) on ssp forum are working for me.

hmmm..that's a first. I'm also just about the worst millennial on the planet when it comes to technology so who knows.

That 'split the uprights' shot is $$$ Nick. :cool: Also, I think we can tell how the operable windows are going to look and work in that last pic from Pitt.

Here are a few more of the glass going up on the west side Amenity level....

Cheers
