That old H&R Block in the foreground kills me. I wonder if any of the original facade is under that mess.

^^^ Looking at this pic makes me really hope that the glass color isn't identical to that of RATR.

Indeed. And it breaks up all the concrete-like panels but the combo here works really well. I wish they would get it going for the glass installation above this, but was rumored to be plagued by incorrect dimensions that lead to an incorrect fit issue. Nonetheless, this will should turn out spectacular once it is fully clad.

This building almost makes me wish I didn't follow this forum. I've mentioned the W to friends who love the skyline but don't read up on it and I don't think any of them get the impact this guy is going to have. I'm jealous of the surprise they'll have when it finally overtakes the RATR and puts it's stamp on the skyline. This one is going to be a gem.
