These renderings are older. However, I don’t remember seeing them before.

We'll see what it looks from street level. Not optimistic.

There will be a stairwell at street level. The north and south sides is the existing parking garage it's built on.

Looks like the building has topped out(at least the elevator shaft). After the current floor is poured only two more to go.

Slender metal support structure for the stair feature on west end being installed. I really like That cantilevered angle of the glass curtain wall. Gives a dynamic look to the building. This makes the Sheraton across the street look even gloomier-grey, grey, grey.

The dark stripe also works quite well. It looks to be full length and breaking up the blue glass keeps it from being a sea of blue.
