The angle extends all the way down to the the deck. The effect is quite dramatic in person. Based on the renderings, they are at or near where the western most portion should start angling outward.

Is this design change a big deal or not?

^^^ It's already 20 some floors from grade and still barely looks like a stump. This will look large from the two angles Bvic took shots from. Can't wait to see it from Navy Pier and Wolf Point.

Great shots Bvictor1! Looks like the east crane jumped. That side should start going up now after a good pause.

There was some discussion about whether this would be a make it or break it glass situation.....see what I did there?

I am personally in the blue glass camp. I feel it'll compliment the skyline along with elements of the lake quite nicely. Perhaps even give the building a slimmer look.

I think you mean fast approaching the 20th floor (at least from upper Wacker). The last number in the skip door is 9.

Construction has been speeding up. Last pour started Wednesday and they are already pouring the next level today.

I was counting those below upper Wacker, the core is a couple floors above the 18 or 19 floors above upper Wacker already, putting it around 24-25 floors above the earth, which I feel like is how we should be counting since that is the base of the building

From the ground up, the tower will have 101 floors, but from upper Wacker, the count it 96 I believe.

Construction itself has been very steady. Now that they are past the mechanical and transfer floors and into more uniform forms it has started rising faster.

All good signs that this is totally on track

BTW thanks BVictor1 and harryc for all the updates. Not being there I really appreciate it.
