Spire lighting looks incredible as always. Thanks for the heads up, Cap'n!

The unlit mech floors look awful, and it's completely noticeable. Sort this out, designers.

All of the nighttime renders have the mechanical floors lit, but there's still a ton of interior work left to do. The only interior lights we have right now are construction lights, so this isn't remotely representative of what the tower will look like once it's finished anyway. We just need to be patient, and it'll look fine.

Also, I'm surprised by how much I like that orange look on the spire. I hope they use it on more than just Halloween.

I think Tokyo Sky Tree has very tasteful lighting, especially when colors are faded over the length of the structure. I'd like to see the spire of 1WTC follow that sort of look, instead of the candy striped or monochrome lighting we've seen.

First glimpse at an almost complete floor (63rd floor) in 1 WTC.

Yeah, as was stated above, the lights in the building are still temporary lighting. I'm sure the mechanical floors will be illuminated with the final result, as the renders show.

I believe the sky lobby for 1 WTC is on the 64th floor?

63rd is office space.

Yes, if you go by the way they number the floors (they skipped 7 through 19).

Is this one of the Conde Nast floors? Being one of the 1st corporate entities to soon occupy this building, it would make sense. It looks like it is almost ready for occupancy.

I believe the Conde Nast floors are lower. I think the highest floors they go up to are the 40's.

I wonder if the permanent office lights are just as bright as the construction lights. Because the Goldman Sachs Building has the brightness office lights in the US. Oh and will the office light change colors or use color plastic on special occasions.
