Fabulous photos, Ken.
Inspite of all the design changes I think the building will come out looking good.

Once those temporary ring platforms are dismantled from the antenna, it should look great with an aesthetic improvement

The platforms with the blue safety netting are the temporary ones, right?
And any idea if they're currently installing the mast LED's?

From the pictures I would guess that they need to jump the crane first?! If not for the next segment, then definitely for the last one with the beacon..

I'm sorry if I'm just unfamiliar with the term, but I don't know what 'Mast Leds' are. Could you please explain? The only thing that comes to mind is a tower climbing cage because of the "le(g)s," but then 'mast' wouldn't make sense. All I know is that the crane is looking too short to do much more lifting in its current configuration, if only just.
