Speaking of mech levels, right now the sun is shining through from the other side of the building at an angle that is giving me what I think is my first glimpse of the "drum" on levels 30-31. Am I seeing things, or does the drum seem to be suspended 5 or 10 feet above the floor?

What you see is the slab of the intermediate floor inside the mechanical level, which forms something like a balcony inside the space. That slab has a rounded shape, the same that will have the future drums, that will be constructed around those slabs, enclosing them.

But an image is worthed more than a thousand words, here you can see what I am talking about

Maybe there will be a glass skin on the outside of the curve. The renders did make it look full and reflective.

The open mechanical floors allow wind to pass through and the round drums cause it to break up instead of forming vortices. Vortices generally form against flat surfaces, and create sway, so the drums are one of the primary measures for keeping the tower relatively still.

The renderings show that the mechanical floors will be especially lit, and the rest of the tower will have "normal lighting", with some windows lit and others not.



So, based on the renderings, I'm not sure how any part of the building can be lit rainbow. If you want rainbow pride, your best bet is One World Trade Center's spire.

This will not have special lighting, it's a residential tower.

The mechanical floors will be lit in pure white, nothing else.
