now it will just jump to 92fl/345m , then construction will start on the circular turret which will reach another 12m to 357m.

Well, the number are a little funny.

There are 4 mezzanine levels which technically make the tower 96 stories tall.

Anyways, if you see rebar sticking into the sky, you know it's got a bit to go....

This is my first post. Trump stands for excess and exclusion, but this building is so wonderful that I think it transcends anything Trump could have hoped for; NOT counting the interior, of course. I've seen pics of the grand ballroom, and I'd rather get married on a boat, matter of factly....

Nonetheless, congrats Chicago! This baby rocks!

yes we all know this, but there not counted in official number. thats why its referred to as 92fl on website.
bottom line is that its reached its roof height. with just circular plant room to go.
and spire of course.

I'm not so sure its at the roof yet. they are still assembling rebar cages for the support columns on the ground.
