All I can think of is how this will look when Comcast Tech is finished; and especially if 1001 S Broad Street; Liberty of the River; Broad and Pine; and SLS International would ever reach potential. Oh the possibilities would be endless.

Looks like we've got another section of spire coming up. How many is it going to be made of?

I'm guessing Sunday is the day they add to the spire.

The diagrams that were posted show 3, so it’s almost done. I️ thought each section of spire would be higher.

I was going to say the same thing. 2 more sections that size for a total of 3 and it's done minus the cladding covering it all.

On page 1 about half way down there is a rendering that clearly shows three sections on this final piece.

I don't think you can go by the framing, counting them as individual sections of a 3 section lantern that is. It does look like 3 sections in the rendering but that's the cladding split into 3... if that cladding mirrors the framed out rectangular sections now & there are only 3 then I think the lantern would end up shorter than it appears in the renderings (where it appears to be taller than the cooling tower itself)? I"m guessing each of the 3 sections of the lantern consists of more than one of those framed out sections

Edit: went back & looked at the diagram on page 297, there are 9 of those framed out sections in total so there's quite a ways to go yet, looks like each one of the cladded 'sections' consists of 3 of the framed out sections (we now see 2 of)

Yeah my bad with the estimation. I must have been thinking about what it'll look from the outside once the cladding is up, not the framing, since the "finished" spire will kinda look like 3 sections, but yeah that doesn't correspond to the underlying framing.

According to the diagram, there's 9 horizontal braces in the spire, or 9 "blocks", with the top most one being a little shorter than the others. We are currently at 2, so it'll grow 4.5x more. I take back what I said about thinking each section would be higher, as again, my brain switched up the sections of the bracing with the sections of the cladding. It'll be pretty awesome once it's up all the way.


This was the diagram I mentioned, originally posted by PHL10 (http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...postcount=5926)

I was told by someone who is well-versed in school relocations and movement that Russell Byers is definitely moving. They are actively looking for another location per my source - just nothing has been announced officially yet.

I had a feeling that they wouldn't be like that Atlantic City granny's house next to the casino tower.

The reliability of the webcam and its operator have been very skittish of late. Don't count on it coming back up any time soon.

I tweeted at NBC and emailed them regarding it, no response. I hope it gets fixed soon.

im not sure of the purpose of the box sitting on the setback roof on the north side but its obviously not a cooling tower. I was looking at it today from the car and I'm thinking it may be a generator that is there for construction use only. I assume it will go once there is usable normal power throughout the building which would allow them to complete the fit out work inside without use of temp power.
