The mast does appear brighter now.

The not too well lit area at the bottom seem to have been fixed!

Edited:Added two cool shots.

Totally out of proportion for this tower...

You do know the old North Tower's antenna was only a few feet shorter?

I trust that means the spire can be lit up in any colour depending on the occasion like the CN tower.

They're finally taking down that orange netting on the communication rings!
Now they'll have to remove those yellow 'sticks' as well and the rings will finally look finished!
