Wow, Chicago looks awful in post 177. I had no idea there were so many surface lots at that time.

I started from Page 1, and quite the journey. I just love seeing buildings under construction, as opposed to them completed.

I even got to see one of my all-time favorites under construction, the Bank of China tower in Hong Kong. Have seen it 2X when visiting there, always wish I could carry it back home with me I love it so much! I M Pei at his best?

I really wonder, during construction, during windy days, how much debris fell from these buildings, injuring or killing people. Anyone Know? There just had to be some accidents along the way!

Thanks ever so much for all your work in uploading all this!

Here are a few I stumbled upon of Los Angeles during the late-80's/early 90's boom from the Getty Images collection.

TCW Tower, 777 Tower, Figueroa at Wilshire and a newly completed Library Tower in 1989.

Nearly completed 777 Tower with Two California Plaza starting to rise in the foreground in 1990.

Nearly completed Figueroa at Wilshire and 777 Tower to the right and a small portion of the Gas Company Tower can be seen in the center, 1990.

Two California Plaza & Gas Company Tower ~1991.

Bonus image I found of an under construction TCW Tower and 777 Tower in 1989~1990.
