Looks like they randomly started filling in windows in this part of the building…

This is bitter sweet. This was my favorite of the four towers initially but they watered it down to meh. Still a nice building but…

Another milestone: it looks like the FAA lights and top part of the crown have been turned on. The FAA lights blink rather quickly. I imagine they would have gone on the spires :frowning: .

Here’s a live video:

It could be work lights, but they look rather bright and uniform.


#1592

looks like construction lighting from across the river. I think the plan was to light the mechanical levels below, not the parapet.


#1593

Yeah I can’t tell. It looks pretty uniform from here in Queens. I thought that was the plan too. I was hoping they would light the parapet with the mechanical floors.

At any rate, the FAA beacons are on.

#1595

Beautiful. Looks good. Makes the building look “alive.” Hope they light the mechanical floors soon.


#1596

Is there any reason that they keep construction lighting on years after the building is complete? I know it is space that isn’t occupied but wouldn’t you save a little money turning those off?

A little “day after tomorrow”-ish
