Article Excerpts:

 

"The tower will eventually stand 60 stories and 777 feet tall."

  

"Perhaps the tower's most striking element - besides its sheer height - is the cantilever, arching over neighboring buildings to the west. The 'champagne glass' has clearly been refined, but the base definitely resembles a stem, fluting upwards into the structure's residential floors."  

 
"Glass dominates the vast majority of the exterior, but the amenity-laden base is actually clad in masonry."
  
"While no completion date has been announced, demolition of the existing structures is now underway."
