Is construction still planned to begin tommorow???

Yes. The official groundbreaking was today.

Today the guys at SOM were dissing this building out loud.

And dissed this building.

Are you folks familiar with the Libeskind design for Sacramento? It's called "Aura" and should be breaking ground shortly. Here's a couple of pics...

Check out the forum for more info and pics at...

They both look rockin!!

i agree with everyone else that it would look much better if it was taller. i altered the rendering a while back to see:

I couldn't help but notice your "taller" rendition and at the risk of making this thread too Sacramento-ish, I thought to myself, "A little taller and it might look like Libeskind's 'Epic' proposed for Sacramento!" (not to be confused with 'Aura', this one would follow Aura's completion, likely)

I thought i already saw something like this in covington before. Maybe it was a cylinder building or something.

I think this is a wonderful project for Covington and really raises the bar.

how is this project progressing?

^There's a webcam on page 2. Crane's up and it appears that they are working on the first floor.

Check out the construction progress on The Ascent
This is a live webcam of the construction site. It's well under way.

Here are photos of The Ascent on January 24, 2007. The building is almost topped off and much progress has been made on interior framing and exterior work.

Pretty cool. I had no idea it was under construction, let alone this far along. :cheers:

Lecom Jan 25, 2007 5:31 PM

I had no idea that it was already so far ahead. I'm pleasantly surprised, so far it looks much better than the renderings, especially the skin. Perhaps it would indeed be nice if he built some complex in NYC, even if it may not be appropriate at the WTC site.

Here are some picture of the building from this weekend
