    Probably floodlit at night. Crowns are silly anyway.

    I suppose as the sun moves across the south, the panels will contrast light and shadow, but the effect will be missing from the north - and the park.
    I think that is what's going to happen. The slants make the crown seem like a darker shade of blue than the rest of the building.

    The exterior scaffolding is now being taken off of the South Tower.

    So what's the deal with the height? *It's obviously not going to be 80 stories. *Does anyone know when that changed? *There's a big difference between 80 stories and 55!!!

    That never changed.
    Well, at least concerning this design, not the inumerable projects that failed.

    The twin towers are advertised as 80-story buildings because their height is roughly that of an 80-story residential building.
    Although this is in fact another lie, because there's no apartment in the crown and a true 80-story residential building would really be 790 ft tall.

    AOL Time Warner Considers Cutting 'AOL' From Name

    By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK

    America Online, in a self-effacing role reversal, is petitioning AOL Time Warner to remove the "AOL" from the parent company's name.

    The request means that AOL has now come full circle. When AOL, as America Online is commonly known, acquired Time Warner to create the company two and a half years ago, its executives insisted on putting the "AOL" at the front of the name, one executive involved said last week.

    Now America Online's chief executive, Jon Miller, is seeking to more clearly separate the AOL brand names from the parent company, in part to avoid association with the many corporate travails and scandals that followed the acquisition, AOL Time Warner executives said.

    Mr. Miller's petition is highly likely to succeed, in part because many executives from the Time Warner side of the company have argued for months that the AOL should be dropped from the name because of the AOL division's woeful performance after the merger.

    AOL agreed to acquire Time Warner at the peak of the Internet boom, when its stock was highly priced, in a deal initially valued at $165 billion. But AOL's revenue was only a quarter of Time Warner's, and after the merger closed, the AOL division fell into a quagmire of collapsing advertising revenue, consumer defections to higher speed connections and federal investigations into its accounting.

    Today, AOL Time Warner said Richard D. Parsons, chairman and chief executive of AOL Time Warner, was weighing Mr. Miller's proposal in advance of a board meeting next month.

    A company spokesman said: "Dick Parsons and senior management are considering a name change as a result of the America Online request, but this is a decision that will be made in do course with the board."

    A name change is purely cosmetic, of course. But it would entail a change of the company's ticker symbol, currently AOL, as well as its signs in Rockefeller Center and around the country.

    News of the request was first reported in pre-publication copies of "There Must Be a Pony in Here Somewhere," a book about AOL's acquisition of Time Warner, by Kara Swisher with Lisa Dickey. Its publisher, Crown, part of the Random House division of Bertelsmann, distributed the early copies to journalists in advance of its publication on Oct. 14.

    Them, and the retail/gastronomy tenants, as well as Jazz @ Lincoln Center.

    The complex is so vast and multi-faceted that the various zones will be opened on later dates. *I believe that residents won't be moving in until early 2004.

    Nice. *Yeah, the restaurants are gonna be top notch - Jean Georges Prime (steakhouse), a "new' French Laundry, a sushi place that was in Beverly Hills for 20 yrs where the chef tells you what to order and you pay $500 for the privledge, and a couple more. *Architecturally speaking, I'm sure they will all be spectacularly designed, hopefully with great views.

    I haven't seen the designs of the sushi one, but the other three are really great. *I rendered two, and may or may not render the third (to be decided by client). *And the views are pretty spectacular!
