It almost definitely has something to do with the BMU


#303

I hope so! I’m tired of those ugly nostrils all around Tower 1. Time to fix this thing and put the windows back.

#305


I don’t think anyone cares a fraction as much about this as I do, but it’s so satisfying to see the windows being cleaned on this building. The transformation of the surface is incredible


#306

Oh I care! These classy glassy buildings shouldn’t be so dirty


#307

I care. It’s bad enough the building was value-engineered to all hell. The least they can do is keep the damn thing clean and shining.

Speaking of shining… they need to fix that beacon.


#308

The beacons in some shop in New England… it should be done eventually


#309

Have they ever finished cleaning this thing?


#310

No; In that last photo the really pale sections are covered in the dirt from during construction of the building.
At this point, about 75% of the building has been cleaned to some degree since construction. Once this job on the west side is done the building should be 85-90% clean.


#311

Got it.

#313

Nice find Thomas!


#314

Now imagine if the whole building was as clean as the bottom part in that picture


#315


Further buildout of the contraption on east side of parapet


#316

heck of a way to spend the heat wave


#317

Looks like they kept the mech lights on during the fireworks display. I think in the past they have shut those lights off.

Also hopefully one day those alien looking work lights will be gone.


#318

Great find!


#319

One day…


#320


There’s something clearly protruding from the rings now


#321

what do you mean by “alien looking work lights”?
