I assume you're talking about Randolph Tower. That's not glass on the top half, it's construction netting. It's currently being renovated and (I think) going residential. They've had all sorts of problems with the terra cotta fascade. Pieces falling onto the sidewalk (ouch!)

Chicago's Trump Tower ready to be 'topped off'

Tribune staff report
10:40 PM CDT, August 15, 2008


Construction workers plan to make the last significant concrete pour Saturday at the top of the Trump International Hotel & Tower, a milestone in the construction of what will be the second-largest building in Chicago.

The "topping off" of the skyscraper's concrete core will be commemorated in an unofficial ceremony, said Joe Payne, assistant superintendent for McHugh Construction. Tradesmen will raise a bucket of concrete with an attached American flag more than 1,100 feet to the top of the 92-story building at 401 N. Wabash Ave., to make the final pour.

Another ceremony on Tuesday will have supervisors, structural engineers and company representatives pour a bucket of concrete at the top of the building, said building construction manager Tim Snyder. In late September, Donald Trump will attend a ceremony putting the building's spire in place.

When completed, Trump Tower will stand around 1,350 feet, the largest building completed in the United States since the Sears Tower. Containing nearly 180,000 cubic yards of concrete, it will be the second largest concrete-reinforced structure in the world, after the Burj Dubai building under construction in the United Arab Emirates.

I never knew what this was but: if structural building is topped off its called 'topped off' what do they call when the tower is built to the tip of the spire.
