A-W-E-S-O-M-E, Mike!!! WOW. The perspective here is DIZZYING!!!! I haven't even seen this yet... I bet my hometown has changed so much in the 2 short years since I was there, I might not even recognize the place. This is just astounding! GREAT architectural shot! (How many stories is this thing, again?? I assume it's taller than the Sears?)

Thanks for the comments! - Mike

Nadya - Not sure how this building is going to rank in height. It was going to be the tallest and then after 9/11 it got shrunk down. It looks about the same height as the Hancock but it doesn't have any ornamental spires on top of it yet. I think it has 92 floors. - Mike
