That should jump it just higher than any building in front of it. And as far as I know There's plenty of work still needed to be done involving the crane on the Beacon. They still need the cladding done, they need the AC and pump units up top, and they still need glass which is in progress as we speak actually.

Is it me or are the pictures showing in a much higher quality after the site update? Is the new site more capable of displaying larger file sizes, which means less compressed images?

You are now able to resize images inside the text box as they appear, maybe they seem better in quality as they were edited so they could be a manageable size. Also with the new update Twitter Tweets are posted and displayed in full.

Plus, you got the construction elevator guideway that's still on the side of the CAC building. Too bad the angle of the street wouldn't allow you to also get the scaffolding on the front of the May Co. which will soon be augmented by work on the JHB buildings.

Thursday 25 October. Due to the large amount of rebars and the depth of the rebar space, I believe this foundation will be a floating slab.

You don't AA concrete... It's so watered down that it will start cracking in a few years. Cleveland and Lakewood had to take legal action against them for their 2000-02 concrete work on West 117th.

This is the last weekend to get photos with 2 cranes in the sky, with the Beacon crane coming down next week.  I doubt if I'll make it up there this weekend, but a couple weeks ago I was driving on the innerbelt headed east around Carnegie, and thought that would be an excellent vantage point.

It’s been way cool to see big cranes in Cleveland’s skies (foggy or not) - thank God we can now start enjoying the rise of The Lumen on the heels of The Beacon - Thanks to everybody for the great pics!

Amazingly, soon that crane and its associated building will be higher than your vantage point.

The Lumen will not only be a beautiful addition that extends the skyline on its own, but it will also  help connect the CSU Rhodes Tower (2nd tallest educational building in the USA)  more to the downtown skyline.

Where was this taken from? Great perspective on the depth of PHS and Midtown, with the Fenn and Willson Towers, and UC way back there!

Thanks, haha! Hard to believe how close it was to possible demolition when looking at it now, it's been redeveloped amazingly.
