So are those office lights at the bottom part of the tower all Conde Nast or are other tenants moving in?

From floors 20-44(half of 44) is Conde Nast, so yes all of those lights at the bottom are their floors. Other tenants have begun fitting out.

So much for the entire building being cleaned before the opening At least, that's what you told me would happen.
That one little strip that they cleaned months ago, already needs to be cleaned again When this thing does finally get a full cleaning, it's going to look like a brand new, flawless Diamond

I never said it would be cleaned before opening. I said Durst will only clean the tower twice a year.

Seriously, the dirt makes this building look 20 years old.

Ahh, yes, you are correct. I got my wires crossed My apologies

I highly doubt any of that cleaning was actual cleaning because if it was, they surely missed a whole bunch of Tower I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't do a complete cleaning at all, until early next year.

I seriously love the base cladding. It's so unique.

I think it doesn't look older but in fact it's very annoying the part of cladding is still brighter than the rest!

Is it true that one of washing-platforms has collapsed?

Looks like it. Two window washers trapped on the side of the building. Looks terrifying.

Oh damn. It sounds like they're in good condition and they're not in danger of falling (they're attached with individual harnesses), but it's going to require cutting out some of the window panes to get them back safely inside the building.

...maybe it's too early to make light of this, but I'm going to say it: this is what you guys get for complaining about the dirty glass.
