Why does it look so crooked? Those of you in the know, please enlighten me...as I find this building looks squared off with the intersection and whatnot at street level, but from other photo's, the tower portion looks like it's on an angle...am I just seeing things?

I think it is on an angle. I like it that way. It will change things up on the skyline from all buildings walls facing another wall.

This seems like it is taking a while to really shoot up. Anybody else think that? When I was there last August, it really wasnt too much shorter than it is now.

I'm digging the pano feature caltrane. I really love the cladding on this one. You will definitely recognize this one once it's done, a part from the fact it's 78 stories.

I think you are correct...this should begin going up faster when the transition from that setback is finished...
