I was thinking as well that it's not topped out. Will they jack up the antenna similar to the burj dubai spire?

^yes thats what they have been doing. the have gradualy placed antenna segments inside larger frame spire and now are pushing up.maybe one more push to take it to full height.the grey bit below red/white section looks like it will be taller. the red/white sections look final. i think its the transistion segment between spire and antenna is the bit to be more exposed.

they should have made the slope on the roof more dramatic, I think it would have looked better that way.
