It might be topped out IMO. I think I can see the pyramid top through that green protective netting. Anyone else think so?

I don't see a pyramid, but indeed this doesn't look like a regular cube under the net. Halfway on the right side the sky is shining through, except for some slab, especially on top. The left side seems to be concrete with openings all over though...

Seems like this tower always keeps some secrets, and after years of clock vs. no clock debate, we now can discuss about the shape of the top.

Jeez, I looked closer at the top now, I do see it's 4 floors under that netting. Darn.

This is definitely the weirdest building being constructed on SZR. I have no idea what they are doing right now.

I am sure they read your post about it being ugly and now they are making it uglier to outdo themselves.

Why cube is ugly?!

Beside don't forget the spire that should be coming soon, it will be easier on the eye.

Those floor lines indicate that there definitly won't be any clock.
