Porkopolis Square

Porkopolis Square is a fictional skyscraper being constructed somewhere in Ohio. Climbing a real skyscraper would probably be a fun, but extremely dumb thing to do. Besides, here at Local Architecture our correspondents usually just sneak into old abandoned buildings. Sneaking into 600 foot unfinished skyscrapers isn't our business. They would probably have unclimbable fences and security guards anyways.

The view 400' down the mechanical shaft.

This is about 3/4 of the way to the top, I think.

Apparently they hadn't finished the stairs.

Looking through the floor down a future mechanical/plumbing chase of some sort.

This is what Porkopolis probably looks like from down the street at Mike Brown Stadium.
