Hmmm...The crown is supposed to be a glass atrium, and I can't find anything that indicates that building plan was changed. Folks on SSP seem to think there's more work to come on the crown -- additional sections. Coming from the thread poster who's contributed heavily, I'd tend to put stock in it.

According to the renders, the tiara is to be painted white, not glazed.

I'm glad this is finally done! I will be down in Cincy tonight so I'm hoping the tiara will be lit up.

Wow, I didn't know this thing was already built. This is a nice addition to the "Cincy" skyline.

I will try to snap a pic of it tonight if it's lit up since I will be on the Kentucky side of the river tonight.

200 feet taller with thinner proportions and a properly clad crown could have made this exceptional.

Agreed. It looks chubby and the crown is just okay
