Are they going clad the (spire?) in glass, or are they going to leave it as it is?

It will obviously be classed with glass, as shown in the renders

The roof seems to be closer to the other comcast towers roof than in renders. Which is great news. I didnt like the look of it being shorter with a higher spire. Their roofs from most angles look juuuust about the same. Great project.

Yes.

One of my friends calls it "The Beast" because it is so massive.

I call it "The Refrigerator."
