Has anyone seen the Chrysler Building in New York when it's clean? That thing shines in the sun like crazy. Can you imagine what the BD will look like in the desert sun?

Haha, nice job AKing.

So do we know at what speed/where they're going to be doing the cladding? Obviously they need to leave the elevators clear, as on the SWFC. And I guess they can't do the tops of the wings that they're still working on. It'll be interesting to see how they do this.

I hope it's speedy, though. I'm ready for this baby to actually look like a building!

We know it's the real stuff, but the question is whether this is the start of cladding or just a test to see how the new facade units fit.

They normally get hoisted up by an elevator then they are place one at a time from inside the building due to the limited amount of crane power available
