What height are we currently on? Are floors 87 and 88 already up? Are the columns in the pic below already floors 87 and 88?

Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure the people who put up the steel are not the same ones who color the lights.

I like the new glass - building seems much more modern with it. What is going on inside? how extensive are the renovations?
