Yup, I like it, too.
Except for some last finishing touches, The Torch looks complete.

Hopefully the residents will also have reason to like it, considering the problems with the investor...

The crown looks a bit like those cardboard cakes that strippers jump out of.

No I don't think it can be changed yet to completed, look at the Burj Khalifa, it has been topped out and looking completed from the outside for a long time.
But still it isn't fully completed.
So I am sure you can't call this building ready just weeks after the top out.
