    These two different views seem like two entirely different buildings:

    From the Northwest by day ...



    From the Southwest by night:



    Nice to see all these images side by side ...



    These shades are just plain bizarre ...

    They should hire you to write the marketing brochure.

    I think we're going to argue about this building until it reveals itself - like IAC.

    Yeah, the different perspective renderings help to explain how the effect will change as you move around the exterior. I'm really looking forward to seeing this go up.

    I like the multiple "hanging scrims" and think they make a very interesting complement to the windows but I wonder how the heck something like that would work in practice. Motorized? Then you would need a remote with about 30 different buttons to adjust 'em. If you have to pull them manually you have a different problem, given the height of the ceilings. If on the other hand you could not adjust them it would be silly.

    My favorite thing about this building, and it's really clear in this set of renderings, is the way the travertine is polished near the windows.

    Last I saw there was just a backhoe scratching around on the site.

    Lots of foundation work / deep pile driving needed on this site (orignally marshland before it was filled in to become piers and waterfront) ...

    The questionable part of this project are those two sides we don't see in the renderings.

    Per the rendering below it looks like it'll be a 22-story version of Le Corbusier's Notre-Dame Du Haut, specifically the south facade: http://figure-ground.com/travel/image.php?ronchamp/0002

    I walked by the site (without my camera) recently. The excavation work has begun and they are now to about 20 feet deep on the excavation.

    Glad to hear construction is progressing! for a while I thought that this project was dead becuase of the lack of attention it got for the last couple of months

    I think that's the Caledonia. Thanks for all the shots by the way.
