All the scaffolding along Carlton Street is off and the new marquee/entrance is being constructed in place of the old one. Also, some new openings have been cut into the brick along Carlton to make way for new windows/doors.
They've installed some downlighting on the north side of the building, close to Church. They way it picks up the brick facade looks really sharp, and I hope they install it all the way around the building
I've seen that from my place for about three weeks now but haven't been over there at night to examine it closely. I wasn't sure if they were testing it for the reason you describe or if it was practical lighting for something that is blocked by trees in front of the City Park Co-op. From where I sit it looks really effective. There were three lights but now there are only two that are illuminated, not sure why.
