How can you tell if you can't see it when it is covered by scaffolding? And from all pictures I could see it anyway

I seem to be one of the minority of people that actually quite like the antenna :p I never really liked design for the spire.

The antenna is more 'New York', if that makes any sense at all

Seriously?? It is hardly visible from anywhere at the moment as it is JUST sticking up past the surrounding structure. It has a long way to go before being at the final height.
