"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.

All of the tape is off of the south side of the hotel

100% finished my model of the CTC. If you print it, it comes with the window washing crane as an accessory.

I also learned that the actual BMU can be stored inside the lantern and the rest of the tower opens in July

Meaning the hotel and its public space open July? Nice.

Behind the design of the Comcast Technology Center

https://www.bizjournals.com/philadel...gy-center.html

Not much new here, but thought I'd share the final paragraph:

Quote:
While rumors of a third tower to round out the campus come and go, it doesn’t look like another Comcast building is either imminent or planned. “At this point, we have just moved folks in and have a lot of work to do as we get settled,” Buchholz said. “There’s nothing on the books right now.”

Can any one get behind this paywall? I think the article may shed some light on the design process.

There's still plenty of blue tape on the south face.

On the office section, yes. There's also some vertical metal cladding missing along with some glass panels that need to go in
