Quoting Sam Knavel I have a question, what did you use for the window pieces, and were did you get them?
Hi Sam. The circular towers use trans-blank cylinder pieces (part #30562). However because they are transparent I had to build in square towers inside consisting of black grill plates and trans-black plates so they would appear more solid.

I would very much like to see my Lego Bonaventure displayed next to your RenCen. Shame I live in the UK so it would make it very difficult.

Within the Portman trilogy, I've always thought of the broad shouldered Ren Cen as the big brother, the slim elegant Peachtree as the sister, and the short Bonaventure as the little brother. BTW the 8-stud diameter of my central Ren Cen tower actually works out to be 1:615. To truly be 1:650th it would need to be only 7.5 studs wide, at which point I decided "eh, close enough". You can get away with more when you have a greater height-width aspect ratio.

Quoting Spencer R. Nice, it's the Ren Cen's little brother. Approximately what scale is it?
Since they were both built by the same architect that's a neat way to describe it. As for the scale it is 1/600. I did try to make it 1/650 but the towers didn't then look right. I have never been to the Bonaventure before but thanks to Google street view I was able to get an excellent look at the podium base which was one of the most challenging parts of the design. Thanks.

This is similar to the Renaissance complex in Detroit... Great work! If you have the time you should comment on my skysrcapers.

As I have said on other's 'mocpages' it's amazing how LEGO creations can trigger memories! In this case it reminded me of when my estranged wife and I spent two weeks at the Bonadventure! We were there when in the time it took us to order and eat or breakfast the Westin when from being owned by an American firm to becoming a Japanese Company! To celebrate breakfast was on the house! I loved the elevators it was a very futuristic (for the time) place. You captured its spirit! And I never heard of the expression: "...worm's eye view" but I agree it was one that showed the awesomeness of the structure! Now a question have you ever seen it in person or stood there?

Excellent detail. I love the worm's eye view shot (the last photo)
