Perhaps the climbing crane will lift the spire pieces. The roof will be pretty crowded with two cranes, mech equipment, the comms ring, etc.

I can't wait to see it played out.
I would think that they would have to remove the cranes on the roof or at least partially dissassemble them when the topping out happens, but I could be wrong..I wonder if when they have the topping out ceremony, they will actually be outside standing on the roof when the last bit of steel is hoisted. It definately will be a big day and I am excited for it.

They have to build the concrete roof slab before the TV mast can go up. Current plans call for part of the comm ring to go in once topped off and 1 crane to be removed and the other crane changed to platform to install TV mast. Crane will jack itself with sections added under cab, like conventional tower crane.

Top out of the roof/parapet in April seems like a long shot. But doable if DCM gets its act together and the weather cooperates.

Here are the remaining floors and heights.

92M 1,194’ 8”
93 1,208’ 4”
93M 1,223’ 6”
100 1,240’
101 1,254’ 2”
102 1,266’ 8”
103 1,293’ 4”
104 1,313’ 10”
105 1,334’ 8” (roof)

Top of parapet 1,368’

106 catwalk
107-109 communication spires

Top of spire 1,776’
What are the 4 fictional levels?

106, 107, 108, and 109. They aren't really floors in the normal sense. Hence the term "levels".

I can't beleive it!
Somebody has even increased the floor count in the thread title, although the old value was already mutch too high. Don't you think, that we should put the correct information into the thread title, because otherwise we only fool ourselves? I mean, probably nobody here gets paid for doing that markting?!

Yes. I would presume equipment related for the antennae and broadcasting capabilities. So while not a true "floor" in the normal sense, there is some practical usage for them.

Theres also the fictional level 110, it's located on the window-washing tracks, only 16 square feet...a supposed symbolic reference to the Twins...
