From the other side..
If you're curious about detail, recommend downloading the highest res version off flicker
you can see all the structural bracing for the base of the lantern.

^ I didn't realize that the top elevator cladding changes color at the top. Is this new compared to the renderings?

995? We've done it! We're finally in the supertall club! Oh, I wish 9-year old "I hope the ACC gets built" me could've seen this.

995' At last! Wooo! can we finally spike the ball!

You guys don't know me all that well but I've been waiting for Philly to get a 1000' building since 1986; in that year the some of the Construction workers were told that Liberty One would be 999'; sadly it wasn't.

Finally! Finally!

I'm hoping that change in cladding is just that it's not finished yet - would look super awkward if not. Not going to sweat it until it starts to look like it's finished.
