It would be one thing if this was an isolated incident for McHugh, but it’s not. In the past 5 years this has happened on at least a half dozen of their jobs. Most were just not as prominent. Think back to Coast, Wolf Point West, Mila, Renelle, NEMA. McHugh is a great concrete subcontractor, which takes precedence over the GC side. But they are ultimately responsible for the project performance and should have managed the facade buyout, performance mock-up, and delivery process better.

Looks like the glass was worth the wait.

Glass looks great. Wish it was a bit greener, but at this point I'll take it. Blue-ish glass is better than no glass

^Depends on which area you’re looking at. I drove past on Friday and there was a section that looked emerald green to me. Stunning.

I'm very impressed with how reflective the glass is.

Can't wait to see it reach the first frustum portions.

Interesting. I will reserve any further critique until I see it in person then!

Welcome to the magical city of Oz!

The glass is definitely green and further along than I thought. Thanks for those photos, Nick.

P.S.: Sometimes I like to like to imagine what BCBS would look like if they added another 24 floors on top of their tower...

Nick... your photos are always amazing, but today they're just leaving me speechless.

We've discussed this before. The blame is on McHugh for trying to manage the glass themselves rather than have a third party company manage it. McHugh hired EFCO to step in after McHugh bungled the manufacturing and installation process.

I spotted Vista from I-90 at O'Hare this morning. Definitely it's own peak now.

I'm holding my breath re: the blow through level.
I really hope it doesn't look like total garbage.

Since the city is changing their view on building signs they should also look into allowing blow throughs to be lit at night.

Would definitely help Vista and Nema, but i should hold judgement till they're complete
