They look like perimeter posts for the top of the blue netting frame. I think that system has catwalks built into it to allow for easy movement and rigging during a jump. Not entirely sure though

Not Yet. The next set of steel will take us to the roof, (floor 105)
Height- 1,334.
The last Jump is the parapet, which will be a wall of perimeter steel.

so we have roughly 55 ft to go from the current 1313ft - 1334ft roof, 1368ft parapet. Howevet, is there any possibility that the next set of triangular steel corner nodes will take us all the way to the top of the parapet? i know its a long shot, but the latest crane jump looks like it could certainly accomodate that height.

The steel triangular nodes will touch at the next jump. The parapet has a separate jump.

If i recall correctly, Otie said something (to the effect) that the steel corner nodes specified had changed from the originals as depicted in his own model. Which is why i questioned the long-accepted assumption that the corner nodes would meet at the roof, and not the parapet.

In my eagerness to see this baby top out i cant help but second-guess and speculate on the final few feet to the top! Ultimately all will be revealed over the next few weeks!

Nice..finally a pic of the frame.

Can you guys maybe photoshop in a red arrow to which floor/beam it is currently/today?

I don't know exactly where it is right now, dunno if it's currently on the 1st 2nd or 3rd from the last floor/parapet

isn't here where the core ends?

And something else, the space between the core and the perimeter columns looks a little to small... is the core able to allow office space?

Thanks for the amazing shots!

Both the cranes were being jumped at the same time. Both with counterweights and booms at 45

Those floors aren't office floors.
Office floors stop at the 89th floor.

The core has several reductions and reconfigurations at different levels (most of them occuring at the base) and it goes all the way up to the roof slab. Thanks to the constant changing there isn't any floor where the perimeter columns meet the core, in fact this floor has the shortest span you'll find in the entire tower (not counting the base, of course)

The shaft will eventually get closed once the core slab team reaches that floor.
