About four more floors and they'll have to adjust the webcam if they want the entirety of the building to stay within the picture. They'll have to angle it up. (I don't know why they're showing so much of the street anyway... but I'm not in charge.)

But with the street visibility, FryGuy can see the concrete placing boom he’s been waiting for, lying on the side of the building.

Yeah, I badly want to know there they will place. I do not see any openings on any of the floors of the floors they have poured, so it is extremely interesting to see how they will do it.

That's cool. But I meant Commerce Street.

Without zooming in, it kind of looks like blue glass.

I was going to say, yeah, that is a really nice photo. Man, that makes me want to go for a walk on the Riverwalk. I love the contrasts between the limestone and brick and the vegetation and sun and shade. It just screams "unique".

Looks like the cantilever is topped out.

(Technically the entire Riverwalk end is a cantilever, but I mean the extended bottom floors.)

Oh, I see what you mean now. You're talking about the hotel room balconies!

It's already half way done. I really wish it was at least 300 ft. Oh, well.

Awesome! Maybe your connection feels like turning left and snapping an interesting partial view of Thompson/The Arts.
