Wait...How can they top it out in 3 days when the complete crown is still missing? Am I misunderstanding something?

By topping out they obviously mean the topping of the concrete core.

I agree. But, the case seems to be different in this building as it is going to be fully covered. I think the previous images posted of the rendering just explained that. I post one of them below for better explanation. I stand corrected, if at the end it is not.

I believe he was referring to the safety conditions in the picture he was acting towards. There are no safety nets or better railing to help construction workers from falling. The only thing from keeping them from falling is the very thin cable around the perimeter of the floor.

If that is to be the case the platform is just wide enough to get all the necessary protection. There are buildings constructed without such edge to stand on at all.

Thank you for pointing me to that.
