Would that be a lobby that's open to the public?

Yes, It's the West Lobby entrance right off of Penn. You will see fencing up everywhere but it's still accessible. Lobby hours are Mon-Fri 6am to 7pm. If you are here at lunchtime there is a nice Bistro downstairs. Just take the escalators.

Cool! Thanks. I'm checking it out at lunch tomorrow. :-)

They delivered a shitload of glass panels this morning. The crates are labeled floor 6,7,8, etc. The scaffolding is at the 22nd floor today and they have the beams installed up to the 16th floor. Looks like they are ready to go balls out on this project.

Here are some shots of the renderings Mobyhead discovered in the lobby. Disregard all colors, as these are photos of prints. A better idea of the final color can be gleaned from the images I posted in this thread a few weeks ago.

Looking at NW corner:

Thanks Ablerock. Helps put the remodel in a better perspective I think.
Had another delivery of glass this morning. They're cruising right along.

OOOH...I love the new images! This is really going to breathe new life into a boring box. This will definitely update the skyline and give the city a "neweer" look, since most of our talls date from the late '80's.

It appears that the top of the north and south sides are infact going to have LCD lighting. This will be great for the night skyline. Now if we could just get some night renderings!

Yes!

Not only that but... it appears the top is larger than the bottom (like it shrinks as it gets towards the bottom) perhaps that's an optical illiusion? But yes... I also like the current glass (the spearmint green color) they have going up better than that blue!

This brings us one step closer to having a skyline that we can be proud of when watching it on Monday Night Football.

I can't wait to see the various messages that will be flashed across the top of that thing during the night, like Go Colts or Ditch Mitch...

Interesting

I guess it's just an optical illusion but I swear in each of the pictures it looks as though the building is getting wider as you go up (cone shaped). Also.... anyone notice the section of glass panals (with the possible LED display above) on the north and south sides, that is different from the corners are not centered on or symetrical but offset to the east. That seems a bit peculiar. Its very noticable in the last pic. I guess we'll have to see the finished effect will be.

I happen to pride myself in our skyline! Like i've said once before "it's subtle yet striking"

Just spoke with one of my sources. They are in fact going to add some height to the building to accommodate the LED along the roof line. Currently there is about a 4 foot wall extending up from the base of the roof. Also he informed me that Long Electric is doing some preliminary work over at the Chase Tower. They are going to install some type of computerized lighting on that building, perhaps on that ledge about 1/4th of the way up. It will allow the tower there to bask in a glow that they can change colors.

So the Chase Tower is supposed to get some LED lighting too? That would be freaking sweet!

I have been saying this for YEARS!!!!!!!! Now, if they would do some lighting work inside of the crown too, they could make Chase Tower very dramatic at night. I mean, it is 811' tall for christ sake!

Also, I read that the AUL building is getting new signage "to show better" at night.

No no no. I'm assuming they will be like floodlights that shine upwards at the tower. The Indiana War Memorial has kind of the same thing. It glows blue right now but they can change the color to meet their needs.

Maybe they can do what some of the towers in Hong Kong do. They really like to show it off....

Wow. The new renderings look fantastic(for this tower)!
The colors arent thrilling, but they are refreshing from just dark blue glass.
It does seem like it gets bigger as it goes up, but I think this is just an optical illusion.
I wish they would do something with the base(and repair those old statues!).
It would make a fantastic outdoor cafe!

Our Bistro downstairs is through Crystal Foods. They had a food cart thing out on that plaza a few years back. It didn't go over very well. Also there used to be a fountain over there but it was leaking into the kitchen downstairs. So they filled it with dirt and planted some greenery.
