Does anyone know where the crane/hoist installation comes for the window cleaners??? Or is this not visible from beneath the tower?

I believe there will be a permanant small crane on the roof of the building; A window washing set.

Well, the base cladding is very cool for sure, but honestly, it's looking quite messy now with some of the fins extended and some of them not.
Why don't they extend all fins of one side of the base first and only after that continue with the cladding on the other sides? Would certainly give a nicer impression of the base than it is right now.

Give it time. They are still in the middle of doing it. Once done it will look better. I already like it a lot.

Above the revolving doors is a massive window, but the conccrete walls will obviously not have windows... I personally don't think it will feel uninviting, but instead like a normal building interior.

I was just told they tested the Beacon AND the Mast lighting at 3:00am last night/this morning and that everyone was raving about how good it looked! Has anyone seen it in person and are there any pics out there??? I was told the mast lighting install wasn't going to be ready yet, but apparently that was wrong.

I knew I saw it lit on Earthcam last night.

I pulled an all nighter and happen to be on Earthcam and saw a part of the mast blue?

Was it lit in blue or something?

it's been said that they've been working on it, and they did say they would have it working by sometime in the summer. I'm sure it's no coincidence that like the beacon, they tested it days before the fourth.

I see it... I wonder how much luminosity that sole window will provide the interior.

I believe you can access your old account now.

I heard it was some kind of glitch that many user's were experiencing.

Just wanted to let you know.

I'm not sure what color they used for the test. Their only "complaint" was how bright it was....but for brand new fixtures that haven't degraded or accumulated any dust/pollution, etc. too bright at the very beginning of installation is not a problem from a lighting designer's standpoint.

Simply cannot wait to see this thing lit up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
