And the best Jump of all, in my humble opinion (and this isn't even 2SFH's best song, but it's close)....

The crane's now perched above the horizon as seen from the 26th floor of 1111 Superior. Loving it!

 

I'm wondering if they'll need one more small jump toward the end? The height of the crane's crossbar looks really close to (or a hair above) my best guess for Lumen's final height. 

 

(Sorry for odd coloring on the pic, sunlight was streaming into our kitchen, where this was taken ...)

The final height is about double the Halle Hanna building, the building on the right in Paul's picture above.  The Lumen is currently on the 17th floor, going to 34 -- it's going to double it's current height.  So yes, they probably will have to raise the crane a bit more.

Corrected building name -- always confuse the two. Thanks Htsguy!

Foraker I think you mean the Hanna Building

For what it's worth, there are two crane jumps in the animated construction video, so it looks like the crane will still go higher.

Before everyone starts getting jumpy, let's stop for a moment of reflection (especially for those thinking the Keith Building will be 'overwhelmed') 😉

Wait till you see the glitz and glamour of the city lights of Playhouse Square reflected upon these walls at night! It will have a multiplier affect that will only enhance the experience  of stardom. A glass tower at this location was a wise choice.

Also according to that video, we're just a month behind schedule!

From those great angles, it's obviously taller than the Hanna now.

Some views of The Lumen from yesterday's Indians game. I was really interested in seeing how it was going to look from different parts of the ballpark, so I strolled around the upper deck for a bit. Also got one nice shot encompassing both it and The Beacon!

Been an UrbanOhio lurker for a long time and now decided to join the fun. Here’s a great view of how the Lumen is totally transforming Euclid Ave through Playhouse Square as seen this afternoon.

 

This area will really be something, especially at night with all of the theatre lights, the chandelier, and soon, our glassy new tower😍

It really does extend Euclid Avenue. Remember a few years ago before the Edge was built? That section was a dead zone.

Does anyone know where the glass curtain walls are being made?  There is a shop not far from me that has a number of large crates of blue glass sitting around.....thinking it could be Lumen glass.

That's not the Bulkley Building. That's the Keith Building. The Bulkley Building is much shorter (eight stories), although it is designed so that you can add more stories on top of it.

I’m pretty sure @Terdolph was joking since we’ve given him such a hard time about the “covering the BP Building comment” over on the NuCLEus thread. Especially since he has said that the Keith building is one of his favorites. And doesn’t the view in that picture have the Lumen blocking what would have previously been a (not particularly impressive) view of the Bulkley Building?

When you can stand in the middle of Euclid Avenue and roll a bowling ball without consequence....

Huh?  There's plenty of people on that part of Euclid at noon on a weekday.

It's not as bad as Superior east of Public Square, but still not good. A friend from Chicago who grew up in Lakewood has often remarked at how quiet Euclid Avenue is. So has my Ukrainian wife who reminds me that the main street in her native city of 200,000 people is far busier than Euclid.

 

But I'm taking this thread off topic. My apologies.
