Columns are now rising on the back of the green lantern portion.

The first bit of the curve is now visible with some of the flying forms removed from the first tower floor.

My assumption is its an amenity floor for residents but I'm not entirely sure yet.

It appears that the tall floor gets them even with the roofline of the existing Green Lantern building. So the extensions will be at even levels with each other. Technically separate buildings, but same developer and shared underground levels.

Also interesting that the top-floor windows on the right side are of very different proportions to the others.

Not sure what you mean, the tops of the right hand top windows are behind the steel horizontal support, but appear to be the same size as those on the left.

They look fatter on the right... left side of the facade is divided into two bays of four windows each. Right side is not sub-divided and has six windows.

Never noticed it before, myself.

Hmmm... same here. I've looked at that building many times and never really focused on the non-symmetry of the facade. Now it jumps out at me!

The building is interestingly asymmetrical (in the same way that the old Sacred Heart school is) the top windows on the right do appear wider, 6 small windows above 5 large windows, whereas it is 4 small windows above 3 large windows on the left

I have to admit that I was suspect of the curved section fitting into the street, but at least in partially built form it looks kind of neat.

Always enjoy the updates on this project. Thanks Jono!

I think it looks interesting too although I haven't seen it in person yet. It'll all come down to how the restored facade looks and how the glass cladding above looks (hopefully nice curtain wall instead of a heavy metal grid with large spandrel panels).

The empty United Gulf lot is standing out more and more as time goes on. It looks awful.

I'm praying that we don't get the spandrel panels on this the way they put them on the curve of the Maple. It would totally ruin it.
