^I think its satire - but the fact that they've been tweeting for 5 days and McDonalds legal hasn't shut it down is concerning

If a McDonald's ends up in the retail space, I don't think it's the end of world.  Don't @ me.

A couple of fun attempts with the pano technique described by @ASPhotoman above. The effect is cool and slightly whimsical 😊

Hey!! Is that a fisheye lens you have on your phone there? 😉 Nice shots!

^^^ Thanks! No fisheye, just my iPhone camera. The slightly concave look is the result of my inability to keep the guide arrow straight while panning skyward. 😆

Really rising remarkably while returning from my rainy ramen run.

 

 I see what you did there with all of those "R" words--alliteration!

What is that hanging of the top of the tower?  Looks like a giant mailbox flag.

Perhaps it's a silly question, but walking in today and hearing and seeing all the work going on, is there an estimate for how many day to day workers there are on site?

Nice. It's moving along so fast. I took some shots of the construction progress when I was there a few weeks ago. Downtown looks amazing.  Keep up the great work Cleveland. :)

Cleveland is starting to look like a real city.  

 

Cleveland has always looked like a real city and has since July 22, 1796.

You sure?? Here's a photo I took of Cleveland on July 23, 1796 with the Pentax I brought from Connecticut... 😉

Having been born in CLE and having spent most of my adult life in NYC, I was always amazed at how, despite being a suburban commute to NYC, people from CT always sound like native Clevelanders vs others from the NE.

I’m absolutely sure! That’s when Cleveland was actually “The Forest City” because there was still forest:)

I count 27 floors. Only 7 more to go.

They were doing about two floors a week but it's slowed down.

Well, technically a real city since 1836–still nearly 200 years.

I’d expect the Lumen to be topped off in mid/late October, if not sooner.

Good timing to get the building glassed-in for winter and interior work.

I wish that Cleveland had something like a Central Park.  Seeing tall buildings rise above a forested view is impressive.  I think Chicago has something like that too. 

 

Maybe we could have a ......

 

no, I'd better not say it.

I live in Tampa, but regularly follow up on the construction goings-on in Cleveland (my home town). Anyways, can anyone explain to me the point of the long vertical stripes on the building? I can't judge them in person as I am in Florida. However, does anyone (who has seen the building in person) let me know if they actually look good or just as bad as they do in the pictures? Thanks!
