^ It's crazy to me that it's even possible on a major job such as this. I could be quite naïve here, but I'd think they'd have 24 hour security that could mostly, you know, prevent folks getting on site, and making it up 50 floors to do this......l.

I finally got a chance to get out and see this site up close over the weekend. It has really come along nicely and looks great. I am excited to see this site when it is completed. The Lake Street bridge offers amazing views of this and the construction sites at North Riverside.

please continue talking about the construction of the west tower in this thread.

^ Stunner

Sidenote, in the photo there looks to be quite a few people/crew on the top floor of wolf point. Wonder if they are officially topped out now?

I just love how this building turned out, it's as if the Legacy had a thinner little brother. On a side note; oh how I hope to see the day when the East Bank Club is demolished.

^ That river canyon shot is incredible, Tungsten. Never realized before that there's now concave and convex facades next to each other (at least, they appear next to each other from that angle), looks pretty cool.

Does anyone have any insight as to why the railing glass is so far behind the rest of the glass, Im just curious of the process.

the sub that is manufacturing the railing is different from the window wall manufacturer... apparently they are having problems, technical and otherwise... the glass, btw, is also from a different manufacturer but I don't think you'll be able to tell...
