1144 Fifteenth is in a very exciting stage right now with the core starting to quickly go vertical. When we last visited this site, we noted that the core was out of the ground and starting to climb. To kick off the week, we are going to check out the progress of 1144 Fifteenth from both above and street-level vantage points.
