Hi all.

Fantastic coverage guys.

We can almost look at the shots one after the other and get animation. Someone should make a gif.

This has been a great structure to watch grow. I have always liked it.

Why does it say T/O, while it isn't finished yet? Or do you not count the spire with it?

Topped only means it reached its final height

Finally spire start to grow on me! I still thinking it would look much better if they paint over red/orange part.

Yeah, a nice shade of blue or gray would be great. And why not ditch the beacon warning lights while your at it too!

A great tower, but the spire does look a bit cheap in the end. Doesn't really suit with the building in term of looks.

I think that the antenna at the top of the spire will soon be covered by the metallic frame right?

Also, if it has topped out, the spire looks pretty decent in terms of its height when compared to the rest of the tower, doesn't look to deliberate about making the height so tall like what people have pointed out in the earlier posts.

I like the spire the way it is. Maybe its too fat at the bottum but I dont mind the red/white bit.

A grey antenna with bright white lighting at night would have been a so much better solution.

i hope it is. theres a section below the antenna that is in between what looks like a thick black ring and the green covering. i would like for that to rise a little more, giving kind of a telescopic effect. im not a big fan of the antenna, i was hoping it would look more like that on the CN tower. i cant complain though, it still looks decent. it just reminds me that this really is just a tower meant for broadcasting television that happens to have a couple of observation decks instead of a building. its still a landmark, though.
