Wow, and the fog back to OBP gives a good indication of the relative distance. Vista should top out near the top of that image.

Yes, it definitely looks greener when compared to the neighboring buildings, which is fantastic. We need some differentiation in the skyline.

Vista starting to poke through the crowd from West Loop




Not the best quality but gives you an idea of Vista and OBP from the Robey in Wicker Park

The parking garage sits behind the North and East sides of the building so yes those were units behind the drywall.

This is the view to watch. Vista is going to look crazy imposing and impressive to people along Wacker Drive!

Vista Webcam

All options on the Vista webcam have been on hold since May 9th and longer. Does anyone know if and when it will be reinstated or is there a new one already in place? Thanks in advance.

Summiting tomorrow to do some photo work for McHugh of the concrete pour.

Can't promise I'll post much live stuff, but if I do, it'll be on my Instagram story

Not entirely sure. Hoping my chaperone lets me roam around a bit to explore some different areas.

Oh man...what a day. I took over 800 frames and am still pouring over them. I can't share the more dynamic action shots until I've reviewed & finalized them with the team, but here's a screen grab of some of the structure/view shots I'm editing.

I think one of the things that jumped out at me the most is how offset the different towers feel at a frustum inflection point.

Before I took that upper-right shot, I walked out to the edge to look South - towards Field - then when I turned back around I was like Holy $h!t!! I'lm looking back at the west tower shear wall.

That top right one is incredible, Nick! Looks like you’re standing in a neighboring building!
