^Thanks for posting. I like the LSD bridge shot the best. It would be great if we got another 800-1000ft tower between Vista and OBP to fill in that skyline gap a little.

Building Giants Season 2

Saw this shot of Vista on a montage trailer for Season 2 of Building Giants on the Science Channel (https://www.sciencechannel.com/tv-sh...ilding-giants/). Paused and took a photo of my tv.

Thinking they might dedicate an episode to it hopefully. Anyone have any inside info?!

She definitely has a good side! I think she looks best looking southwest on her.

I heard about 6-9 months ago that they have been having serious problems with that window wall system as well...

I've gotten so used to seeing the exposed lower support columns on this one that I kind of don't want to see them covered up haha

Definitely be interesting to see how they treat the blow-thru level. But if The entry way is any indication, should be another 13 months until we will see.

The balconies on the east and west faces are definitely a scar on an otherwise stellar design, but like any beautiful person with an obvious flaw, it's pretty easy to forget about with time.
