That would be a bit clever of them, but I believe the "barrels" have to be enclosed for them to efficiently break up the wind as designed.

Some calculation

On april 28th, 72 days ago, the building was 930ft and 60 apparent levels high.
Today it is 1147 ft and 74 levels high. 14 floors more.
That gives an average of one floor every 5.14 days.

Using that average, with 16 floors more to go, it will need 82 more days to get to the top, so, around september 30th, it could make the last core jump.
To actually top out, it will take some more days, since the perimeter is usually two floors behind the core.

Now, that's one beautifoul photo. However it depicts more of natural phenomena beauty than skyline itself, but nevertheless, it's one ..... breathtaking photo.

I thought this onse was supposed to do a floor per 5 days, so that worked out pretty good.
