    What a difference 4 weeks makes. The tower is already starting to rise. I'll keep you updated with pictures as this monster rises to over ~380m (~1200ft)

    The finished product expected by 2008:

    You do realise you're going to have to keep this up for the next two/three years don't you!! :)

    Sweet! I remember visiting Chicago a few months ago and walking by the construction site. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    Here in Philly we have our own skyscraper going up as well, the Comcast Center. I've been meaning to take some shots of the construction. It's starting to get pretty tall.

    Or perhaps invest in some Michael Wesely gear. ;)

    Since I've been alive I've never been able to witness a super-tall construction so I'm geeked. I'll keep updating once or twice a month.

    Wow. Cool to see these. Make sure you keep us updated for the next couple of years to come (during which you'll have to invest in a wide angle lens eventually, I guess ;)).

    This post is so cool! One of those things that is constantly happening here in my city... and I've STILL never witnessed or photographed the progress or anything.

    Wide angle lens? Maybe I'll just move to another bridge farther away :)
