Why did they remove the steel??? It couldn't have gotten damaged by the crane.

The curved steel for the crown? They probably removed it to make room for the recovery operations and derrick.

Interesting, the different color windows form a repeating pattern... with one exception. Excluding missing panels, there is still one that doesn't fit the pattern. What do you think, is this a mistake or intentional?

The window in question is just right of the center, and located roughly half way up. Rather than being dark, it is the light color. Look to the right of the dark vertical stripe, in the lighter area there are staggered dark panels... One of those dark panels has been replaced with a light panel.

Yes, I'm OCD and this smacked me in the face immediately upon seeing the photo. These architects don't know what they're up against.

Admittedly I'm not really familiar enough with the project to have any sort of real attachment to it, but I find the colours and shapes at work here remind me of a tacky and cheap late '80s or early '90s scheme. Some strange decisions for such a prominent tower, in my opinion.

I believe this is for the mechanical floors. You can see that that entire floor has many white panels.

I don't think we're talking about the same spot.

But I just realized that it appears to have been misplaced two panels to the left. They just need to swap those two panels and the pattern is perfect.

I am a little angry at this building for rendering my Harold Altman lithograph, "Central Park 1989", completely obsolete.

Yea I also see the panel in question. However I don't see the panel that it should be switched with. It seems like they just inserted one wrong panel. Nothing to do with it's being a mechanical floor either. The rest of the floor fits perfectly.

Oops, I described it wrong and also didn't notice a three other inconsistencies. It really makes me wonder if this was intentional.

The out of place large dark panel needs to be switched with the light panel 2 to right and 8 down. It is also accompanied by one of the tiny dark floor slab panels that should be light instead.

There are also two of the tiny floor slab covering panels that appear to be light colored when they shouldn't be. Although this is hard to confirm from photos. They could just be missing panels, revealing the concrete floor slabs. If not, one could be swapped with the out of place panel mentioned previously. These two floor panels are 11 down and 1 and 4 to the left of the out of place dark panel.

What's the prediction? Will the pattern be "fixed" or will the minor inconsistencies remain.

I recognized some of your mistakes and I've tried to change them with paint.

This is why I love skyscrapercity forums. Awesome job tim1807!

Now that the glaring errors have been removed, i see only one remaining error. The panel below the left most missing panel should be dark instead of light.

I wonder what it will be like to have colored windows. Personally, I wouldn't want an aqua blue window.

Though, alternating colors of light coming through the window will make for an interesting effect. I can't wait to see photos from the inside that show the atmosphere this creates.

Is the pattern purely for external beauty, with interior atmosphere a secondary concern? Or does it also create a superior experience inside too? It would at least seem to limit choices for color schemes of interior decorating.

If all panels were the same color it would be less of an effect on the inside. When wearing colored sunglasses, eventually the brain compensates and everything looks normal. Then when taking off the colored sunglasses, the real world looks tinted in the opposite direction until the brain re-(un)-calibrates back to normal. Yet for rooms with multiple colors of panels, the brain won't compensate because the field of view would not be all tinted the same way.

Here is some cool examples of that recalibration of color perception.

Now if all the panels were the same tint, perhaps the elevators could gradually adjust to the hue of the interior when on the way up and gradually adjust to the hue of outside when on the way down.

It reminds me of a pixelated Minecraft waterfall.
