It's going to be a parapet to hide the mechanical workings (water tower, etc) on the roof.

Another Floor?

The rebar is standing at attention and it appears as if we're getting yet another story in this current stack - this would be the third story. The initial story has already been fully enclosed in concrete as was done in the lower mechanical stories so it seems that all stories in this stack will be enclosed in concrete and will house the elevator mechanicals and water tanks.

An educated guess. Look at the top of 123 Washington, I think that's what we'll see.

Gehry's cladding is very custom and complicated. I wouldn't expect it to race up the sides.

Of course not, but since they hit the mechanicals back in October it's pretty much halted.

Looking at that pic and one I took on the 8th July...the cladding has only moved up 8 floors.
