Judging by the renderings, it looks like the apartment glass will transition to a blue tone after those first few clear lobby levels.

I might be changing jobs(yay me!) in the coming weeks ladies and gentlemen, bringing me several blocks away from this place to a different law firm. Just a warning that this view might be less available soon. I will try to get coworkers to take pictures with their phones to tide us over though

Losing the view will make it bittersweet :/

Damn, that's a bummer (for us at least, hah). Congrats on changing jobs! Hope its an easy and smooth transition.

Yeah, if you can bribe soon-to-be-former coworkers to keep the pics coming, that would be stellar lol

I think we can already determine that WPE glass will be just as high-quality if not surpass WPW high-quality glass.
Neither may be the most exciting designs but just the beautiful glass will make them easy on the eyes for decades to come.

It also makes me optimistic that whatever design we get at WPS we will likely get high-quality glass there as well.

Yeah, it's pretty much a guarantee that my view is going to be pretty lame now... Enjoying it while I can!

(and back onto the real Bonobozilla account... Even though this one was the second one I guess when I forgot the other password... I'm not a smart man)

Yeah... they've been rotating the flags around a bit the last week or so, I'd be surprised if it was gone for too long.

The core is at the 18/19 floor point, so past that point actually! Hard to see but there are a couple ghost floors on those big floors at the base.

Hard to tell from my perspective, but today was the first day that the tower felt big and the core was noticeably higher than my floor. Also, tomorrow is a big day in deciding how much longer I have this view.

I tell you what, Wolf point east is going to be an amazing end cap for the view south down Orleans street. I just noticed it today walking at Chicago & Orleans it is BIG and its going to stop the view down the street which is really cool
