Which side of the tower is the cladding a little behind? It seems like SW and NE are on par but I can't tell with the NW side

And at @Sarcasticity-Cladding seems to be progressing slower on the NW side.

Okay enough fighting about the antennae/spire! It has completely derailed the thread. Every aspect of it has been discussed to death, so let's please move on. People who insist on ignoring this and continue to derail the thread by flogging the spire to death will be given an infraction. It is what it is so let's move on.

Lets assume for a second that we had never seen the design that included the radome, and what is being built was the design from the get-go. Would it be more acceptable then?

It does look somewhat better than I was expecting, and not much different, from a distance, in appearance to what was on the north tower.

My apologies to the mod...I was composing this post before I saw his...

I'm pretty sure my spire model is ~2 feet to wide. If any one knows the width below and above the cone shaped transition section, please PM me. Also I might have made the diameter of the cylindrical components slightly off. I thought some one said 10 and 8 feet or something similar in the last week or so.

SW: 100% complete.
NE: Elevator (exterior) blocking a small area, so about 95% complete.
SE: 40% complete as of yesterday.
NW: Just began being clad. About 5% complete.

Huh, not one side is 100% complete, all four sides are between 80% and 90% complete.

Is this just for the vented glass part?

The post-War building on the left detracts from the sea of stunning per-Wars in this area. It was built in the early 80s after a fire destroyed what was previously on the site.

Yes, it should be complete to the roof by the end of May according to a few people close to the site.

Agreed. This forum has been hi-jacked.
