Walked around downtown...yes in 111° because I'm crazy like that...and thought I would post some updates.

1. As mentioned on the low-rise thread, O'Neil is setting up the tower crane today. Also, Broadstone Portland now has a tower crane. So 3 more cranes in the skyline, but Wexford's came down.

2. The scaffolding around AC has come down and the hotel actually looks much nicer than I thought. The white and grey really stands out next to the garage and APS tower.

3. ASU is completing it's final floor. Not a skyline changer by any means, but adds some good infill. It's especially nice to see coming West on Fillmore.

4. Adeline is on the 14th floor with some facade on the lower floors and Link 2 is also on the 14th floor. So these towers are roughly halfway.

5. Derby is starting to move faster and on the 4th floor with the elevator shaft is up to about the 7th level.

6. X is pretty much topped on the Eastern end and 1 floor to go on the Western half.

7. Aspire has completed 1 level above ground.

Snapped a few update pics. I was using my super-wide lens to eliminate verticle perspective, so they are a tad blurry in some spots. Sorry I didn't get more...but I was already dying trying to get these.

AC Hotel

Adeline

ASU

Derby (thought I would include the luffing crane for dramatic effect)

I am a very big fan of the new forum photo system. Makes the page look less cluttered.

Also, too hot for walking. Thanks for the photos but put that on pause until it cools off a bit.

Thank you Crested!

I think ASU is actually a skyline changer. It's about the same height (200' vs 208' IIRC) as the Ho without the antenna which is visible from the 202 freeway. I think I've been gone too long but I do not like seeing the same generic ASU logo on the historic post office.

AC is disappointing. I can't remember what we originally saw but there's something that looks institutional about it.

Link 2 should add some bulk to the skyline but won't fill it out. Awesome shot of this one.

I still can't tell if Derby is stalled or not.

You can definitely see X Phoenix driving on the i17 south and i10 east heading into downtown Phoenix. I am very excited to see the finish project of Adeline next year, I believe it will add to the skyline. I really hope the city decides to build more south of Talking Stick Arena and Chase Field in the next 10 years to make the city pop a little bit more. Lastly, I hope Roosevelt Row continues to grow because I feel that part of downtown will make or break how much development will be needed in the future.

On the derby if you look at what Code5 posted on July 25th on the Derby thread and Crested post yesterday you can tell it's moving.
