Noticed that the blue-ish glazing panels of the CW in the Comcast resemble the ones used in the Two Liberty Plaza!...Looks great in the big picture.

The cooling tower and lantern are huge. You The WG is literally an antenna. Not sure what you are looking at.

hey, your spire envy is showing , the lantern on CTC has the general footprint of the trailer end of a big rig, check out the lid being unloaded from just such a trailer:

If this is a "ridiculous lil' spike" I cannot imagine what you must think of the comparatively skinny/tiny needle sticking out of the WG

The first Comcast Tower remains one of my top favorite American supertalls. This one... while the surface materials and design details are nice, and the height is great... the overall massing and composition are somewhat unattractive.

WOW! it seemed it took for ever for them to complete that spire, it was for months just with the base of it. But once they did it, they did it in a blink of an eye!

They had issues with the steel and they had to inspect it before they'd allow the spire to continue to get built.
