I Agree. Perhaps a little something like this:



I honestly think they are going to leave it as is though. It doesn't really bother me either way.

I rather see a John Hancock or a Sears Tower alike Antenna, but it is still looking good as it is right now which won't be changed anyway.

The very top is looking pretty bright and shiny in yesterday's sunset compared to the rest.

You are funny ... and have funny friends too ... anyway, I might like to live in a pink building as long as in an upscale neighbourhood cause pink is a fave colour of mine.

Located in the heart of the one of the continent's financial centres,gucci those 200 square-feet of real estate don't come cheap. Yet for now at least,louis vuitton Steve Inniss -- the man who opened and has run Savedbybikes.com since May 15 -- is willing to foot the bill in order to expose his unique product to an audience largely composed of well-to-do business people, many of who commute large distances every day to get to work.louis vuitton handbags

It looks a lot more Glassy. I really don’t think it’s that great of an improvement. They, really, over looked the potential for what could have been a spectacular upgrade. This is one of the tallest towers in North America. What is it, like # five or something maybe the sixth tallest? The floors go right to the top as well. It could have made the forth tallest in NA with only cosmetic changes, a "Mega sphere", plus made it shine to boot.

You'll be surprised when it's done. It'll be many magnitudes brighter and whiter than it is currently, which I imagine will be quite striking in any light. In addition, the corner inlets will be darker and add some vertical lines to what is currently a very horizontal facade.
