nothing new to see. relax people, we are in the stages of construction where changes come slowly, and there's no need for a photo everyday. once the building is above ground, you will see photo updates more often.

Maybe this was discussed and I missed it?

I think that the lighter gray is the diagonal face of the building, which you cannot see very well in the rendering on page 1.

The tower is a wedge -- on page 1 you see a thin side of the wedge, and the picture above is a thick side.

Anyone have any new photos?

It looks like this one is at the same exact phase as Freedom Tower.

^ according to victor, they're gonna be tooling around in the ground until next spring, so don't expect frequent photo updates until then because not much is visually changing at the site right now.

Just wondering where you took that photo.

Was it from the parking garage just to the south of the site?

^The Alley along the south end of the site. A scaffold went up over it, and a section of the perimeter fence was removed as result, making it easier to snap a pic from this angle.

^ OMG, the core's about to go vertical!

Boy, that is a rare (and last-ever) elevation view of Wacker Drive from the south.

Right.

you'd lose that bet. as I mentioned before, they aren't going to pass Trump Tower. Trump has too big of a head start for them to catch up. and the core isn't going verticle yet. have we all forgot they they still have hell of a lot of soil to excavate out from around the core? they have to go down 4 floors and then build that space back up.

it's not going to bass or catch Trump.

I think Fabb might just have meant that once it does begin to rise it will go up faster than Trump has been going up, not that it will nessisarily catch up with it.

That's why I was saying... All right, it was obvious since it's half the size.
But, will it rise twice as fast ?
