^That's going to look great. Too bad they got rained out mid-day or we could have seen a bit more, but looks like that glass is going to be nice. I'd be shocked if they opened this building in Nov of 19. 13 months from now would be absolutely flying... I guess the way concrete is going and now that we know glass is on or ahead of schedule, maybe they will pull it off. Exciting!

White outlining on the glass? YES!

Anyway, here's an update from yesterday and today:

Yeah, I noticed those cinderblocks a while ago and didn't know what to made of them. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the eventual cladding that will go up there

They bulk out the columns - which otherwise just look skinny. Some people in my building [321 N Clark] are actually worried now that the cladding has been pulled off our support columns, and you can see they are "just" steel I-Beams, not the thick columns everyone always assumed were solid.

Got this picture as I was checking out the next phase at Old Town Park. Poor quality, but cool perspective.

Very cool perspective for sure! I like how well this one will cap two vistas at once. Canyon cut offs are very cool, and a tower that is almost 700 feet tall will do a great job at that.

Also, great update Wolf Point Watcher!

Edit: Okay, seriously guys, check out that website. The 360 degree view thing is amazing! SOOOOO HYPED about this site right now
