I didn't say I knew for sure, but that a July 4th topping out seems more likely at the moment because of what's been said. I can't claim it either way.

That highway construction really looks bad. I can't wait until the trees are finally planted there.

Spire assembly can't begin until the roof is completed. We still need to finish the 105th floor and the parapet. It will begin after that most likely in July or August.

Glass is on floor 77 now. It probably won't be finished until September.

Yea same, I was thinking December. Glass actually restarted 2 months ago today after that long period of no glass and has risen 11 floors since then. Thats over 145 feet of glass in just 60 days

It seems so "alone" or empty. Its just better with a complex, and a few other skyscrapers or supertalls.

I would have rather they opened the four sides to muralists than do to the base what's being done to it.

On which level we are now? Are close enough to T/O?

I'm no image analyst, but something is wrong with that pic. There's no way so much of the tower would still have to be constructed. After all, we are already at the top floor
