Holy crap, they're actually going to put the cladding on the spire? How long has this been a thing since the whole spire/antenna debacle started?

I think first must be completed ring with cables or wires, and then they can complet the spire. It could be unstable to built whole spire without those wires. I donīt believe that mast will be cover by plates. (only tip section)

It's not a bad analogy.

The steel towers of the George Washington Bridge were supposed to be covered in stone:


The decision was made towards the end of construction to leave them uncovered:


Whether covered or not, they are still bridge towers. The spire on 1WTC was originally designed to be covered in fiberglass. The decision was made to leave it uncovered. Covered or not, it is still a spire. The Spire was never designed to house communications equipment... that was always the role of the ring above the parapet.
