5:15 pm - last pic from my POV. I have to head out now.
I'd be curious to see existing examples of spires "lit from within"... can't think of any but no doubt there are plenty in China and elsewhere. Unique in North America perhaps? Probably not.
I'm off to my aA meeting but they haven't helped much so far (recovery seems out of reach when you are boxed in).
Those concrete boxes on the roof seem to detract from the elegance of the spire. I was also hoping the spire would have bolder, too. We'll see how it ends up looking when it's finished, though.
would anyone mind explaining what is being observed in the photos throughout the afternoon? Thanks

How is the remaining work on the spire to be done? Will someone be climbing up there to do it.
How much longer til the spire is illuminated? will it be soon or are they just going to continue floor by floor til they reach the top?
Crane removal is pretty cool and something few get to see. I was really hoping someone would have captured and done a time-lapse type clip, but no such luck, I guess.
This will have to do (from Toronto's own Bell Lightbox):
And this is what not to do with a crane:
And for kicks, what not to do on a crane:

National Post asks if Trump will be connected to the PATH: Manager not sold on PATH to Toronto’s Trump hotel
The Trump tower did rough in a connection to the PATH, Mickael Damelincourt, general manager of the Trump Hotel Toronto, told me Monday. But today a wall blocks PATH users from entering the Trump. Mr. Damelincourt said he is not sure whether he will open the PATH connection to the Trump.
“If my guests arrive via the PATH they will take the elevator straight up to their room and we will never see them,” he notes. In the Trump vision of luxury, the guests enter the hotel and a hotel employee greets each guest by name before they go upstairs. Mr. Damelincourt does not wish to threaten this personal touch.

City assumes responsibility for signage, maps and identity markers (Individual property owners control the physical PATH segments)
