I see it, I can totally see it from this angle.

It's a shame she doesn't have horizontal detailing similar to One Vanderbuilt. That would help break up all this blue glass

Or like it's neighbor to the east...

I get that they wanted these towers to have separate personalities, especially since one is residential and one office, but it does feel like WPS would have benefited from a little more detailing.

Thanks for sharing! Cool you had these handy. They are both right around 850'. The nub at the top is definitely a shared similarity as is the long rectangular form.

A small crane to bring down the big crane is being hoisted up today.

I LOVE this.

Yeah I don't care what y'all say this thing is going up at a snails pace lol. Feels like the glass has been stuck in the same position since November. When can we expect the entire structure to be topped out/glass filled in?

something about this new blue wall just feels underwhelming... maybe it is because they're almost all the same in terms of massing, height and color.... am I alone on this?

I think it is because of the lack of articulation at the tops of 110 and 150. However it is really only when viewing the group from the west. From the confluence the four office towers are much more interesting with the clear view of the bases (150 and 110's strong points) meeting the River and the reflections of the surrounding buildings varying the look and feel of the curtain walls.

Great updates also thanks all!

If the sun would actually make an appearance, it would change the whole vibe of the all that blue glass. Cloudy skies are no friend of blue glass.
