I hope the cladding is complete by summer.

Looks like more diagonal braces (including the blue film) on the west side - or at least the left side of the west side. No noticeable glass installation since I checked the other day. Guess they're focusing on interior stuff.

Once the cooling equipment is up, is it then totally different crews that work on actually connecting things and running pipes / ducts / etc.? Meaning, a lot of things will be handled in parallel, right?

Yes, they built another level of the elevaor

If you look closely, you can see the steel beams extending above the top.

Most likely for a structure that will hold the cooling towers

Pardon my stupid question, but are the "cooling towers" that gray part of the building on the 18th Street side that are above the roof but lower than the spire? Is that included in the roof height?

That is correct. Looks like the cooling towers are staged on the terrace on the north side ready to be hoisted up. They have been there for over a month.

I wonder if the opportunity for Comcast to expand its presence in the former Bell Atlantic Tower lessens the need for a third tower? Something already built, across the street, seems like an easy choice. Maybe they might add that sky bridge thingy that was discussed a few weeks ago.

Conjuring amazing images of what that lantern and shaft will do to the skyline at night. Stunning!

It'll probably be too dimly lit, like everything else in Center City. At night, PHiladelphia looks like the city that always sleeps.

It's not bad as a whole, but the Liberty Place towers' deficient lighting is quite noticeable. Let's hope the spire of CITC shines like the crown of Mellon Bank Center.

I think there's reason for optimism given that the top portion is after all a lantern - if the engineers managed to design the brightness out of it I call conspiracy

For some reason they stopped fireproofing the steel with 10 floors to go a couple of weeks ago. That will stop the glass install at that point. I really don't get the way some things have sequenced on this building. They seem to keep doing things that stop other things from moving forward. Either bad project planning, bad material management or something. Rather a frustrating building to watch go up. If you look at other buildings, here and on other city sites, the sequence usually makes sense. Not so much with this one. Lots of dead time without visible progress. This is not a hospital with complicated infrastructure that takes time, its a hotel.
