Looks like it is due to bad weather slowing down progress.

It's also possible that the mechanicals demanded some sort of design change late in the game Apparently there's the 76th floor, the roof, the lower bulkhead roof, and the upper bulkhead roof to be built. They must be somewhere towards the upper one by now.

That seems to be the reason, yes. But 3+ months with all floors finished? Don't think so, I'm guessing there's more.

I just hate the "forgotten" side, which doesn't echo the beauty of the rest of the tower.

It's like the Beauty and the Beast.

i think the flat side is not that bad, it gives you the best impression how tall this tower actually is (900ft).

Are you saying that top floor is a mechanical?

I see one mechanical floor, one probable mech floor above it, and a possible parapet at the top.

Well this looks to be floor number 28 above the last setback...I don't know. The last two floors put on look mechanical to me, but I could be wrong.

You're correct, I count 28 stories in the last setback. Which doesn't match the renders. They show 27 stories. I'm convinced it'll be two mech floors at the top and then a parapet hiding the water tower and other pieces on top of the last floor. We'll have to wait and see.

Thanks for the pics jwalas!!

as i said before: 76 residential and 3 mechanical floors, makes 79 floors in total. would be cool if they make a crown which is lit up during the night!

If you count the floors it has 76, but the very top "floor" looks like it'll be #77. And it's not clear yet if its a mech floor. Could just be a parapet, similar to the top of 123 Washington. Might be 77 stories tall, but only 76 actual floors.

hmm, i count 78 at the moment. look at the top (pics above), the render doesn't match the reality anymore. the last floor will be the one which hides the water tank and other stuff.

Does all that mean that this tower is going to be taller than 267m?

yes. personally, i think it will be about 900ft, a pure speculation based on how many floors this building has. but we still need confirmed information before we change the thread title.
