As far as I know, it's not. Should be mechanical floors(roof) and a rain water collection system.

I know about the rain water, but if the core is topped out, shouldn't part of the core be in the crown?

Correct, but they won't be occupied floors as in "people" floors. Unless you meant by equipment and other stuff, then my apologies. When I hear "occupied", I think of people

When I say occupied, I didn't mean office or hotel floors. I meant mechanical floors, equipment, etc. (Who would want to live under a giant rainwater collector?)

Now that I think about it, this tower is a little closer to completion than I thought.

Yes they are bringing two of four cranes down. Now two cranes will partially construct the crown and then one crane installed centrally on the crown will replace the two. Then couple more cranes will replace each other as the construction of the crown proceeds.










The screens are taken from this vid. Watch it from 4:42. The construction of the crown is shown with quite a detail. This sure will be very interesting process to follow. Quite a lot of different cranes will be used in the process.




Just to think those cranes they are bringing were hanging out there for over 3 years now

Well at least according to the video 8th truss belt needs to be constructed first.

YES! They are dismantling cranes! Awesome. That means the stepping process with multiple cranes to build the crown will begin soon.

Here is the video, beginning with crane removal and the final concrete pour that goes up 3F in the crown base:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...21NTz4lk#t=282

4 core cranes are largest 4>A>B>C>D

The cranes decrease in size A to D.

Two of the core cranes are dismantled, then they build half of the crown.
Then a single crane A is installed at the centre of the crown.
Then that crane dismantles the two remaining core cranes.
The single crane A finishes building the crown.
The single crane A then installs a smaller crane B on the rim of the crown.
The single crane B dismantles crane A.
The single crane B then installs a smaller crane C next to it on the rim of the crown.
The single crane C dismantles crane B.
Lastly the single crane C installs a smallest crane D.
Crane D dismantles crane C.
Craned D is small enough to be dismantled and removed by hand in an elevator.
