Just saw something on Twitter from the ESB Twitter account that their Halo lights will be shut down for the next few months. And that the 102nd floor observatory will be enveloped in a cocoon. I tried to find news about this on Google and didn't see anything. Does anyone know anything about this development with the ESB ??

If you go back 2 pages, to Page 69, you will see some posts about the 102nd Floor Observatory being upgraded and changed.

Navillus Contracting advances work in Empire State Building’s reimaging project

January 22, 2019


Quote:
Navillus Contracting, a New York City-based union construction company, is advancing multiple assignments as part of the Empire State Building’s fully reimagined observatory project, covering 75,000 s/f throughout.

Empire State Realty Trust, owner and manager of the Empire State Building, is overseeing the upgrade of the property. While this project is underway, the 86th floor observatory remains open with uninterrupted visitor traffic.

In August, Navillus completed the initial phase of its assignment with the opening of the Empire State Building’s new entrance at 20 West 34th St., which includes a detailed mosaic mural. The company is presently advancing a new phase of work focused on general trades and finishing carpentry work on other projects throughout the landmark.
Quote:
“Navillus takes pride in adding specialized value to many of New York City’s most beloved landmarks,” said Navillus president and founder Donal O’Sullivan. “The newly expanded entrance to the Empire State Building is facilitating the seamless flow of vast numbers of tenants and visitors in and out of this iconic structure.”

The enhanced entryway is dedicated to accommodating the 4.2 million guests visiting the building’s famed Observatory each year.

Skanska is serving as construction manager for the ReBuilding project, with Corgan Associates Architects providing architecture services.

The ESB Twitter page said that they said the 102 observatory would have its lights off or closed until June 2019.
