I'm having difficulty seeing the core as topped out unless the top parapet/glass screening covering the mechanicals is like 3 floors tall. The top portion wouldn't symmetrical at all without that

This is for sure not topped out, tower crane is jumping again on Monday. the webcam shows that there has been 5-6 more tower crane pieces delivered and ready for assembly for another jump.

Thanks for the confirmation/update!

Great set, Harry

Really can’t wait to see how the glass color variation comes out. So far I’m a fan

Good catch, which I never noticed before. I kind of like the idea of no taper at the top. Gives it more a feel of a crown. The E and W sides of the shortest setback also don’t taper, so this ties the building together nicely.

Anyone know how many more feet before TO? It appears to only have about a floor left or so.

Perhaps that is how a taller crown could be incorporated in a less jarring way that we have experimented with previously.

As has been pointed out before, the top two frustums do taper, but are much taller than the lower frustums so the taper is less drastic.

^That's not what we are referring to. r18tdi noted the 20' crown, which begins at EL 1,171', is not tapered.

saw this in person on a walk today. The glass really picks up the sky colors when it is sort of overcast

I think the darker shaded areas are going to register as more blue, and the shades that progress lighter look greener. The lightest shade was almost gray-green today

Yeah I see it now that all the posts on this page are loaded lol. I think I opened this page earlier in the day and then didn't see others had posted before I replied.

Interesting that the crown does that. Are there 2 floors that go strictly vertical at each joint in the frustums?

Viewed from the west, Vista has transformed how the eye perceives the skyline. It was peak at Hancock, peak at Trump, peak at Aon, peak at Sears. Now it's a flat plateau in the middle, the eye doesn't drop down as it scans across the top.
Interesting how different it feels looking out at the city.
