Up up and away

Yesterday the Elysian’s tower reached the 18th floor, 72m above sea level and one of the tallest buildings in the country. Apparently St Finbarre’s Cathedral is 75m to it’s central spire but there won’t be a 2400sq ft penthouse at the top of that!

While we Irish congratulate ourselves on building an 18 storey lift shaft, here’s one I made earlier in San Francisco. I tried counting the floors but lost count around 14!

    Great perspective! I made this photo my photo of the day over at my blog!

    I worked in Toronto, Ontario this year so it seems crazy that the tallest building is only 18 floors. One of the buildings I worked in had 68!

    EssPea – were you in ScotiaPlaza? I work in the TD Tower (54 floors I think). Lots of new stuff going up at the moment:
