Not an elevator shaft, just floors. The elevator shafts that are surrounded by glass is the dark blue glass that's more visible from the North and South since it's more wide from those views

This one has grown on me, but I still really dislike the cooling towers. I can't imagine they couldn't have found/used a material close in color to the silver of the elevator shaft.

I think it would of been better if they could of replicate the pattern on the light spine of each floor to the part where the HVAC is housed and then the cooling towers. If you stand from afar and look at it, the 3 different patterns look like it was pieced together, lit or unlit, and if it was all uniform, it would be a better look IMO.

^It's a bit gap toothed at the moment, but I don't think that the difference between the lantern and bay window lighting is that jarring. I had a nice view of it driving into town for dinner on Tuesday. I think it will work nicely when complete.

Now that the lantern is lit up, I can see it going to work in the early morning heading eastbound on West Chester Pike out where it intersects with PA 352 in East Goshen. It lights up just over the horizon.

^I'm much closer in, but I'm getting peeks at the skyline from vantages that I didn't know existed around Havertown, thanks to the lantern.

Driving east on Ardmore Ave you can see it from Merion Golf course.

the spline

isn't there suppose to be glass elevators serving the hotel, running along the spline. That could be interesting if their travel changes the lighting as they rise or fall. I find the top section of the spline before it projects above the roof, that looks like its covered with some type of louvered panels, to be very strange. The whole spline until that point is consistent then you have this change that doesn't fit into any thing else going on with the building. I still have some hope that this isn't the final look, but it is getting late in the game to expect big changes.

No, the elevator core was moved to the middle.

The office elevators are in the core and some go up to the hotel. But the hotel elevators that are exposed when looking at the exterior are there

Illuminated spire can be seen in Upper Dublin Twp. - which is a first.

The new spire/lantern can be seen from the top of the hill of Camphill Road, & along Dreshertown Road. Best view is on the crest of South Limeklin Pike.

While only about 13 miles from Center City the skyline was obstructed by the hills of northwest Philadelphia. I though for sure the first Comcast building would have been seen from my neighborhood but was disappointed when it was not.
