I don't think they will purposefully remove the remainder until the building's ready for prime time. BUT that's not that far off any more. Still seems on track for December.

It will be fun to review this angle in another two years or so..with the W and 1911 Walnut (fingers crossed)..and hopefully by then we'll also have some new projects to be excited about.
