I'm going to sound really dense now, but in it's current state, does this count as topped out? I've always been confused by this term...

Correct me if I'm wrong but 'topped out' is when a building's floors and 'top' reach their full height (as opposed to simply a core).

This looks pretty 'topped out' then, seeing as the scaffolding is coming down now

The use of so much grey really drags it down

It is clearly an enormous improvement on what was there before (!) but close up it looks a little crude in detail, which is a pity. Wouldn't look out of place in an English seaside resort where the abundant balconies would serve some purpose.
