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:

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.

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.

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. 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
