Veneers are a pretty common practice nowadays- real stone looks for fake stone prices.

Agreed that this base looks very nice thus far.

This is from a few weeks ago but should still be a helpful tip. The Walgreens at Broad x Chestnut has excellent views from the 3rd floor. Windows are floor-to-ceiling and wrap around with little interruption. The little bit of elevation goes a long way.

The progress is phenomenal. Took around 22 months to reach ground level and only 10 months to where it is today. (If I'm correct) Are we halfway yet ??
