Thanks bomberjet.

- The top of CityPlace
- Tavern Rooftop
- The parking garage behind the Tavern
- the Hydro tower
- the RWB
- on Carlton looking in the plaza
- on top of the crane looking down
- out on the north Perimiter
- from 360 Main
and refresh of Google Earth.


Thanks man.

Did you just call me "Buff"?


I mean clearly it is an accurate description but I am a married man.

Apparently I did. Sorry, I'd heard there was trouble at home and I thought I'd take advantage.

I'm going to blame it on autocorrct.

Here's the couple shots I took yesterday evening. I can see from my desk today that they've started pouring portions of the 7th floor.

Because we are all in a webcam withdrawal, I decided to take the matter into my own hands from street level...

Apparently the cranes are going to be jacked up again the third week of July. The contractor is hoping to complete a floor every 10 days on the first tower.

I'll be looking forward to watching that. I can see the cranes and from the 6th floor up of the first tower from sitting at my desk at work

As of last night it was almost at the level of my office at the 7th floor at City Place. When I come back from holidays in a few weeks I will have to look up to see what they are doing to it.

I loved the catchy music in the clip.

Something was supposed to have been built where that former Hotel was, but the deal "fell thru" because Bowman didn't like (and I agree with him) that TN should not be owning so much property downtown in such a concentrated area.
