It supposedly will still have a big beam of light

There are other renders (that aren't in the sunset) that show it in grey and white.

Yeah, but that antennae looks completely different. It doesn't have the rings all the way up the antennae. I also don't know what time of day would make it look rust red.

Actually it does, just look closer, it's not a very high quality picture.

Elementary question but is it possible to encase the antenna at a later date so that it looks like the original spire design? Can't fathom New Yorkers being content with their skyline being scarred by that hideous growth sprouting from the top of that iconic building.

Those rings actually look like the supports for the would-be casing, but since they aren't adding the casing, they might not add those rings either.

I prefer an ordinary antenna over a fat joint being placed on top.

Those are for communication-broadcasting, nothing to do with the Spire.

The antenna, while still comparatively lacking, could be made so much better if they simply paint it white.

The new design really really looks like just an inner frame with a missing shell/covering... maybe because it is, lol.
