I'm excited to see CPT fully lit! With one side lit, it's hopefully just a matter of weeks before the rest of it is lit up!

I noticed that too. Are there glass fins protruding perpendicular to the facade? I can't tell what it is.

There are also some strange rows of what look like metal cylinder on the south facade that I asked about a long time ago.

i believe those are a facade motif that would have continued up the spire should it have not been axed.

i don't know why some people have such an issue with this. i mean yeah it would be nice to have a better resolution instead of a flat top, but the vertical lighting looks plenty slick and classy. it looks great up there in the daytime too.

I do like the lighting, whether or not the flat top remains(and I wish it were more an epic crown or spire). The lighting will help a lot though... give it some personality.

Oh that's easy. Because it's an awkward, ill-massed, unremarkable, 1,550 ft skyscraper that just happens to be the tallest tower in a city that's known for it's great skyscrapers. (If you don't count the awful spire of the Freedom Tower). It can't hide or blend in. It's there to be seen, and boy is it. Shame on Barnett for not insisting better.
