The beacon sure is an improvement, but it looks way too awkward with the top of the building. Something needs to be seriously done about that. The ESP is perfect with its lighting. Perhaps they could find a similar lighting solution for the top half of the tower just to compliment the spire, which almost seems detached, which is definitely not a good thing.

Not definitively. Sears is adding extra footage to its mast, which I read will surpass one world

Will the spire always be lit like this?

If so that is a GREAT addition to downtown. One of the downers of walking across the Brooklyn Bridge at night is that virtually all the nicely lit buildings are far away in Midtown. Although downtown has some nice buildings apart from the Woorlworth building virtually none of them are illuminated.

The CTBUH is holding a Press Conference Tuesday morning to announce the decision on the height of 1WTC. Please refrain from posting more off-topic crap! It is stuffing up this thread. Thank you.

Because the camera has a special filter on it, doesn't actually look like that in person

It spins like a lighthouse, so you only see the brightest part of the beacon every 10-15 seconds

No, it is Millennium Point. 17 State is further east.
