Scaffolding on the top, I think the next vertical steel beams are around the corner.

I saw this tower in the news this evening, absolutely elegant and huge.

What a great iconic tower for all the Americans

I can't get over how nice that looks. I hope this won't be the only time we will be able to see it like this!

Huh, and I was just in that area visiting a friend. Must have been taken from a higher vantage point.

Only thing different is the spire, the building itself is the same.

Much Before, Its 781 feet tall right now, So each floor is 13 feet 4 inches, so times that by two would be 26 feet 8 inches. So current height 781 feet plus 26.8 inches tall would make it 805 feet. So the next move up it will conqure the 800 foot mark with only 563 feet to go to the roof height.

So my opinion is once it passes 800 feet, it will surely start to take its true form and we will start to see the real thing look like its renders.
