Not bronze, but still looking as bare and unceremonial after they stripped it of its cover. Bad decision.

I think the render you are referring to, shows the scaled down height , not the original they had planned from the start. ,, IF the towers are built.. I read that they were gonna lose a 100ft or so on towers 2-3. Or I read in this Forum,, not sure exactly where. There's 2000pgs here.

They don't call him the ROOF crusader for nothing,, and I tend to agree,if it's not a spire.

All major remnants of the old building are gone and site is still pending for developing under PA leadership. Just north of the terrain is located the Vehicle Security Center.

The towers will be built. Not if, but when.

The antenna looks like primer. It makes no sense to paint it when it's up on the building, so that is the final (cheap) finish...sad.

That makes the construction time more than 15 year.
But actually, why not? I hope they do that.

More crane parts are arriving early in the morning!

And alan88 (who is usually very well informed) posted over at SSP that the south crane will come down by the end of the month. That's pretty soon
