They do resemble the old ones, but I think it is more as a coincidence than something intentional. Structurally, both serve similar purposes, alowing a more open space at the base, so is no wonder they are similar. and they won't be seen once the cladding is finished anyway.


As for the lit up of the beacon, I don't think they are gonna make it right now. Of course it already works, they have to test it before lifting, it would be more easier to solve any problem at ground level than at 1776 feet in the air. Remember that the beacon itself may work, but they still have to do all the electrical work up there.

My guess is that they will choose to lit it up for the first time a symbolic date, the most obvious one would next september 11th anniversary, although it also can be july 4th, but i'd go for the former, next sepetember 11th.
