Thank you all for your wonderful compliments. As an architecture student, this whole complex is most exciting. I'm most excited for the Transportation Hub. :D

I love the colors and composition. Great photo and congrats on the AC! From the info I gathered the total height is 1,776 ft and the jury is still out as to determine if it is the taller US building or if the antenna/spire cannot be taken into consideration.

Perfect timing, nice shot Justin.

It must've been very interesting to watch the progress of this historical building.
