I think those are the little cranes involved in completing the outer cladding - they sit on the finished belt truss levels and lower down the equipment involved in the outer cladding for the zone below. They seem to be on short stretches of track - hence the wheels you can see. This makes sense since a whole zone of outer cladding infrastructure was almost finished in the last series of pictures.

You are right, those are mobile cranes used for facade installation.

Here one of these in action:

I think the minimal design or protection is not as bad as it seems. It is just Okay for a building as that tall to have a good reinforcement. Just my little contribution though.

The official topping-out date is still Aug 3rd this Saturday. There should be a celebration on the tower. Can't wait to see it topped out.
