Watching Progress

Though it's been interesting to watch the Hanover tower rise at 717 Olympic, it's tough to see what's going on inside that green wrap enveloping the construction. The South Group buildings, on the other hand, have gone up in plain view, with the buildings bones and skin all sort of coming together at the same time.

While I'm sure there may well be valid construction reasons for doing one as opposed to the other, isn't it just a little nicer to us curious Downtowners when a project lets its efforts stay exposed for us to gawk at? If ever a project has to make that choice, I'd sure hope they'd choose the unwrapped version.
