Good Fit?

In 2000 they dismantled the top 40 feet of the Mather Tower (75 E Wacker, completed 1928) because of decay. There was question as to whether it was going to be replaced.
Then in fall of 2003, a helicopter air-lifted a new steel replica of the top into place, however I am not convinced it is a good fit. The color doesn't match the original terra cotta, and you can clearly see the line of demarkation where the new sits atop the old. They should have done a better job color matching, and filling in the gap.
