Looks good. I suppose when the weather warms up in a few weeks, painting will resume on the blank concrete wall.

Th "blockiness" look at the crown is taking shape. Looks good. I can't remember if that will have a lighting scheme, but it sure deserves one to highlight the unique crown.

Looks like there will be some uplighting in addition to the vertical lines:

This is really coming together nicely. Can't wait to see the base activated. I also hope the outdoor decks, at least the one fronting 15th, are well-landscaped with large tree/shrub plantings in pots that are visible from the street.

I'm a big fan of this bldg. With Del Frisco across the street, the folks staying here will be in for a treat, if high end steak and seafood is your thing and the delicious cocktails.

Philly.Curbed: Drone shots of the W,
https://philly.curbed.com/2019/3/27/...t-drone-photos
Click twice to bring up full res, which is very detailed. The lighting strips are easily visbile.
Various other construction in the backgrounds, eg View II, Chinatown, Harper, POD, etc..
The shot of the northside suggests a second coat of paint! Light cream colored.
