It appears they are around 4 floors from that, so you are right. The first setback is about 2 floors above the short building next to Vista

Was driving NB on LSD last Friday when the city was smothered with fog, so dark it looked like all of the lights in all the buildings were off. But looking straight ahead was the Vista's silhouette and bright white work lights shining through the mist. Already making a statement.

From the webcam it looks like the slab edges have had a sealant or coating applied over the last week or so. Hopefully that means we will see some glass soon.

I remember someone posting pictures of a mock up way back when. Is this the same one before they changed the glass from green to blue?

I had the same thought, especially since the tower looks blue in the background of the renderings put together for that corner building at Lakeshore East. Granted, that might have been done to minimize the distraction, as the Vista tower was not the focal point of those renderings, but still, it did spark some curiosity.

That crane is going be jumping any day now. It feels like it's moving slower but I think that's just because it's getting huge and each additional floor is getting lost in the sheer size of it all. Also looks like they are framing the first full floor above the catilever box on the Wacker side. Should be the first floor of the regular three tier shaft. Should also be the first floor of reversal in the frustrum pattern. Things are just now getting interesting.

^Did they not jump it this past weekend? On the webcam you can see they placed the self climbing shoe, but the crane is not visible in the frame... anyone on that side of town see if they jumped it?
