^This will be such a high quality tower, i can surely say only a few buildings in this world can reach for the quality this one will have. Let alone the engineering behind this pencil. Look what they have put all into the lower floors into this tiny building. It also seems that the lobby of this tower will be very high. I wonder if there will be POPS inside this tower?!

Once they get to the residential floorplates, this is going to shoot up. As thin as it is, we could be looking at 2-3 floors per week.

They already are on the residential floorplates.
I don't think they'll be going more than 3 floors every 2 weeks because there's a certain time (3 days aprox) needed for the concrete to get enough resistance to start putting load on top of it.

The residential floors in the new Tower (as opposed to Steinway) start on floor 25 per the offering plan. Do you all think they are at 25 yet?

30 Park Place was doing a floor every 2 days.

They keep shoring under the top 4-5 floors to spread the load and support the new floors until the concrete cures sufficiently. And the super high strength stuff they were using at 30PP hardened so fast that 2 hours after they started pouring it they were already setting up the forms on top for the next level, all while the other side of the building was still being poured!

check out the renders at the begging in this page, looks like residential floors in the new tower start at the same elevation of old building's lower tower roof

I guess the idea is that your apartment is your own observation deck.
I do like the idea of a residents only observation deck on a supertall needle tower.
Obviously anything open to the public is out of question.

There are a glut of observation decks in major cities today. New York has the Statue of Liberty, WTC, ESB, Rockefeller. These buildings are a bit taller, but for viewing purposes, the height is about the same.

It still would have been nice to see the view in person from this building in particular as it takes in pretty much all of the tall buildings in the city in one large viewpoint. No doubt the view will appear in establishing shots in future television and films.
