For comparison's sake, the Hyatt Place in the Old Market installed the base on June 20th and the crane was completely assembled 3 we...

I meant to post this before but I wish the north side of hotel would match the south side with the windows jetting out. It looks pretty plain when being flat when driving by on 480. Still much better than the Swanson plant that was there previously though.
