Any reason why the last couple floors have been incredibly slow? Seems it's been stalled just shy of the pinnacle for nearly a month now.

Yeah, they've filled in the gaps left by the elevators, a sign of interior progress.
A couple of videos show some floors are already completed.

Awesome building! Would actually fit in really well in the Manhattan skyline.

Not so sure about that, but it fits into the IBC marvelously.

The owner of the Mercury company actually said this building fits in harmoniously with the IBC, but it would not fit anywhere else, that's what's special about it
