We were in town to see family and went ice skating at the ribbon. Snapped these pics. The glass is really something to behold in person. It's going to be a stunner.

Installation definitely seems to have kicked into higher gear, and I remember reading a month or two back from a reputable source here that the delay will not ultimately affect the timeline.

^What's interesting to me is that they still don't have a full floor complete in any location. I wonder if they still have issues they are working through that is preventing them from completing a floor. The slab edge covers look to be progressing pretty quickly, which is good. There is a lot of work to get those anchored and installed.

^Great photos. Designing a water-tight seal at the jagged corner seams is what nightmares are made of. Bravo to the engineers. I don't blame them for the delays!

That green glass is gorgeous. This is going to be one of the top 10 buildings in Chicago for me once finished.

OH MY GOD SkyscraperJunkie, what a way to join the forum. Those are sensational pictures - I love how the reflection of the tower further accentuates the building's shape. I knew this tower was going to be magnificent, but it has somehow topped my expectations ... and it's not even done!

^ it's probably more miscuts than broken panes. That and pieces that might just not have shipped or they lost a pallet somewhere and just need to find it.

The variation in color looks just like the renderings suggested. Really happy with how this is turning out.

We are so spoiled to have a building this beautiful going up and it'll still probably only be my fifth favorite supertall in the city... Well, fourth after they bastardize the Aon Center with their amusement park rides and glass elevator shafts

Fine observation Louis and the summer sunsets(pink skies) will reflect beautifully with the stunning glass!

I bet Vista will look far more stunning than most of us anticipate. It's hard to visualize the final product when only so few windows have been installed. Even if we consider just the small portion with windows, it's already looking much better than any of the renderings.
