  • Three light wells have been cut in the center of Crosstown Concourse.
After six months of construction, all of the old windows have been removed from the Crosstown building, and atria (light wells) in the middle of the building have been cut. Drivers may notice now that they can see straight through the building on a clear day. 

Three floor-to-ceiling atria have been cut to allow natural light into the building. And 3,300 new window panes are being installed in more than 1,100 window frames. That's more frames than the White House and the U.S. Capitol building combined, according to a construction update in the Crosstown Concourse newsletter. 

Window crews are currently performing their duties on hanging construction platforms as positioned as high as 130 feet off the ground. Altogether, there are more than 2,000 feet of linear hanging construction platforms all over the building
