^ The concrete pour has been the same day they install the conduit, every floor. So if you see the piping being installed during the day, that means the pour will be later in the afternoon.

Thank you

Two years ago to this day, plans for the The Lumen were publicly revealed. Now we have slightly over one year left!

That's interesting perspective. So many other bldgs have been announced more than 2 years ago it seems---Nucleus and warehouse district, for example, and they have yet to turn a single shovel of dirt.

Looking at the windows being inset between the floor plates, I hope they don't skimp on insulation on the outer edges of the floor plates -- or the floor is going to be really cold near the windows in the winter!

Boy, the B.F. Keith Building is a real beauty.

 

One of my favorites in Cleveland.

 

But it blocks the view of the BP Building from CSU’s campus!

I'm teasing. And I agree that it is one of the best looking buildings in town.

The views should get real interesting once The Lumen rises above its neighbors.

My favorite building in town is without a doubt the Walker@Weeks Federal Reserve Building. That 's blocked too!

Of course The Lumen is the main attraction - but, it has also brought renewed appreciation to its neighbors, particularly the stately Keith Building, as noted by several others above. The Lumen seems to be already changing the feel of the eastern side of downtown  - at still only about half of its planned  height. Gonna be fun to see its eventual presence in the skyline from various perspectives.

Drove from UC into downtown tonight down Euclid. This is really starting to have a great impact as you approach from the east!

It's OK. 

 

I don't like the view of the BP building from that direction.

The Lumen finally starting to peek out in view from my apartment at the Chesterfield Building. Crazy to think this will more than be double the height of the Hanna Building. I'm ready for this crane to jump Thursday!

Is that a tennis court? Where is this at?

It appears to be a part of The Sphere's building, and the Union Club website says nothing of tennis courts.

This is correct.

 

Hint/Tip:  Some time a 3d view on google maps will confirm a location.

Sorry to post again but I haven’t seen any posts of the glass at night (think it looks pretty great!)
