So everyone knows icons in city have name like Twin Towers, or Library Tower ect.

What nick name could this be called? Lego Tower, The Middle Finger, Walkie Talkie Tower, Cell Phone Tower?

I kind of like the ring to Keystone Tower, it looks like a absctract key in a way and it would play into the states nickname.

After bashing this tower originally, now that the spire is on it it looks much better. Although from certain angles it still looks a little too bulky. But from other angles it compliments the skyline a lot.

looks good at night... otherwise, as with most things Comcast, it's disappointing.

Let's just say that it's Comcastic.

I seen the lantern's skeletal pics but didn't see the type of lighting they installed but it looks like its a non led system from the lighting. Anyone have any details?

Definitely getting a phosphorus feel.
