Be more specific...

Did they say "fuck if I care, now leave me alone I'm drinking my coffee" ?

I didn't realize this was like the 7th or 8th tallest building going up in the entire Country right now, and I believe the tallest outside of NYC - That's pretty cool.

What's more, it is the only supertall that's currently going up outside of NYC. It's a pity that most US cities still don't care much for building tall. Several cities, for instance Houston, did impressively well back in the 1980s but then petered out for good. (Yes I am aware that Houston completed a 757-ft building just last year, but 757 ft isn't that tall by 2017 standards, and it's only the 6th tallest in Houston.)

You think NYC is over building a little bit Any other webcams for Vista?? The glass seems to be going up really slow still.

It takes a crew 2-4 full workdays for every ~15 panels on the climbing framework, because they have to install the frames and spandrel glass

The normal areas, away from elevator cores where they can install from the inside of the building, they do really quickly. the glass panels for the smaller floors can be lifted and installed by two men, no machinery needed. I've seen them knock out 20 panels in one day. I wish they would get rocking on those areas, they go many days without adding one panel sometimes

This list shows how comical the recent headline Chicago has been using: "2nd Most Tower Cranes In The Country in 2017." Look at what NYC is building versus us. No competition.

I think 45 Broad will be taller, at least according to SSP - but I counted 2 WTC as U/C which it may not be. So at worst #7 but probably #6 tallest in country U/C right now.
Either way, still great for Chicago.

Cranes are used to build more than just Supertalls like Vista and NYC condos....

I'm aware. I think it is a rather misleading headline when many of the buildings u/c buildings in NYC are two or three times the size of some of the buildings we are building and I imagine most of what is being built in Seattle.
