Stardate 61228.99 - Erection Getting Bigger

As you can see the construction across the street has come a long way recently. We learned an important lesson from all of this - the height of commercial floors is greater than that of residential floors. The building is only 15 stories tall, and we are on the 13th floor, so we figured we'd be looking at the very top of the building - which is supposed to be all glass and offices. Well, the part that is all glass is another couple of stories above our floor because the floors don't line up. Lesson Learned. At least the crane isn't directly in front of our window anymore.

Not that it really matters, because we'll probably be moving soon to our new place, pending Co-Op board approval. And the meeting has been scheduled.

So you probably won't get a view of the final building from this perspective, as it isn't scheduled for completion until March of 2008. We'll still be in the neighborhood, however, so I'll walk by sometime next year and take a final picture. As a reminder, here is what it is supposed to look like when completed.

It must be awful hard to keep coming up with these post titles oh-ver and oh-ver and oh-ver.

Now that I got that out of my system. At least once you've moved you won't have to deal with the construction anymore. What's the view like from the new place? I think I remember it being on the 7th floor or something, but I don't know anything about the surrounding buildings obviously.

Wow...I know this is the 21st century and all, but I am amazed at how quickly a building like that can be built!
