^The Laurel should pop up to the left of Two Liberty from here in a couple years - curious where exactly from this angle.

Wouldn't it be just left of 10 Rittenhouse? So right in the middle of the gap between Liberty Two and FMC.

^Yep, I am curious about the skyline impact - at 599ft, should be pretty nice, a new peak.

TK ...if you feel like drawing it into your pic haha...

^Thanks TK.
Now if SLS was ever built, man the Jersey view of the skyline w/ FMC, Laurel, and SLS being just south of the main cluster would be mighty impressive.

Can't forget the lights on the W/Element, I can't wait until they're turned on, it'll look great from that angle. I'll make a visual of it

Is it nitpicky of me to dislike how the lantern doesn't go all the way down on the east side? That gap there bothers me - it kills the illusion of a single piece of light coming up from the bottom.

It's still unfinished, they haven't put in window panels there yet because they're finishing up with the roof. The lights will extend from the roof up when complete

Not at all. In fact I think what you have pointed out is precisely what everyone first notices about the building when they see it from 76 or I95.

what frustrates me even more is the glass pattern of the spine's last 50 or so feet before getting to the exposed lantern. That spine could have a very easy and natural transition from the bottom floors to the lantern. Instead they go out of their way to introduce a completely out of place patch of glass at the top of the spine that ruins what should have been the architectural jewel of this building. It's inexplicable. Anyone know what happened?

If TK is correct, which I assume he is, there is no need for frustration yet. See post #9435.

Me too. This seriously downgrades this building in the daytime. Seems like it should have been easily avoided. That's my main gripe with this building. Otherwise, it's pretty decent. It will look great at night when you can't see this jarring transition once the lantern is fully lit.

"It will look great at night when you can't see this jarring transition once the lantern is fully lit."

Have you seen it recently at night from the south? Just below the restaurant, on the east end, and a couple of floors below that are spaces lit by blinding flourescent lighting--it looks like the kitchen is below the restaurant. What should be a placid twinkling of hotel rooms and fine dining looks like Mid-town Diner meets Nighthawks. I don't know what the north side looks like. The lights aren't on tonight, so fingers crossed.

I'm, hoping they are just for construction, but I doubt it; they aren't standard work lights.
