Does anybody know why the last page of this thread redirects back to the second-to-last? It has been that way forever

It stopped rotating a while ago and they've been working on fixing it.

The beacon is currently not being worked on. It's been off for about a month now, I'm pretty sure it would've been fixed by now if they were actually working on it.

That's just an assumption. The wires which have been dangling from the spire suggest otherwise, though. The Spire LEDs also seem to be working at full capacity after seeming dim for months.

They just need to remove the last little bit of the elevator so they can finish cladding the base, as well as replacing any defective panels on the tower.

What about the cladding panels which have these 'dots' around them? You can see them especially in the lower floors above the base.

Those were what replaced the defective panels. Not sure why those 'dots' are needed for, though, especially for so long.

The windows that were near the base were never defective. They are talking about the ones on the east side of the building near the top.
