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...

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)

Congratulations.....

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.

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.
