Yep! The sight had a noticeable uptick it workers this week -- things are heating up and going vertical.

I've been snapping screenshots of the camera about every day (when I remember) and made them into an animated gif showing progress thus far. Thought I'd share.

I feel like this is a new screenshot. It is linked to from the architect's website. It is almost a replica of the one that appeared on CitySceneKC a little while back, other than the obvious time of day change. It shows the street level better though and the word 'Hotels' has been added under the 'Loews' at the top. Anyone see anything else?

Looks like they refined the facade some too and added some detail to the north side of the windows upper floors.

Looks exactly like the city council presentation deck last year, only change being the word "hotels."

I feel for those folks staying in the Residence/Courtyard as the workers are now onsite from 2 AM on pouring concrete, etc..

Seeing the tower cranes coming in from I-70 heading west into DT, this is going to make a contiguous skyline from Bartle pylons to the KCPA. I cannot determine from going by the site or the web cam, but the western tower crane, is it to the north or south of the future western wing of the hotel?

This should help, since I'm fairly certain the answer is neither

Thanks. From the floor plans and the already discernible elevator shaft, the crane seems to be to the south of the west wing of the guest room "L."
