I didn't realize they were running 2 crews on this but see now from the photos that they are. I'm surprised considering they have all available crews at Wanda. I would agree that 2 crews should be able to close that distance.

I'm loving the new retro signage - a nice counterpoint to all the smooth glass and metal.

Haha, a good nod to the old tavern (even if not intentional)

I absolutely love that first shot there Harry. Do it again when the tower is around 50+ floors and we'll have a nice stacking effect with four towers increasing in height!

Also, that angle shows how cool the white fins on the glass look

^ Good eye. That'll be a sight.

I really hope Salesforce uses the same white fins throughout. Per the renderings, it appears that's what they'll be going for, minus the horizontal banding. Two similar-looking towers here will provide as imposing of an effect as one trophy supertall. Definitely would be worthy of such a prominent site.

I also like how WPW is comprised of totally different facade materials. I prefer the appealing variety, like the city around it, than the feeling of a mega-development here.

I hope WPS has a totally different facade treatment. Would be cool if they gave it glass find like that one little office building between ogalvie and union station. Woul make no sense for WPS and WPE to have one style and WPW to have another...

They've made no progress on putting up glass with the recent weather, but if you look you can see they have several floors filled with pieces ready to place.

^ Re Last photo: I love how the north and south facade appears white from certain angles, thanks to the white fins! Next best thing to all that Terra Cotta NYC is getting.

Not depicted, but they did start adding more glass in during the afternoon on Friday.

That horizontal band every three floors gives this some personality

The glass is so sexy on this one. Not the biggest fan of the three-floor bands, but outstanding quality nonetheless
