According to plans on the official Trump website, the 3rd setback begins at floor 28, and the final setback starts with floor 51. It looks like they are working on the 36th floor right now. 50 more floors to go, but smaller floorplates are helping it rise faster now. (These counts might be a couple off either way, if the floor numbers in the sales brochure don't perfectly match the "actual" floors, but you get the idea...)

If the building is going to be 96 floors and they are around 36 now then that means about 60 floors to go?

I'ts amazing that someone pays me to be an engineer, yet I can't even add 36 and 50...

60 more floors to go, which means it'll be almost 2 times as tall as it is now.

The references to those first 2 images are incorrect. Go to the pics you posted on Photobucket, copy the URLs for each image, then edit your above posting with the correct ones.
