I wouldn't think that the communications parapet ring is considered architecturally structural.
The parapet columns are what matters in topping out. I believe that we could very well see them on 4th of July

That depends on the speed of the 105th floor. That's the roof.

They can't until the concrete flooring reaches the top floor which will take a couple of more months.

My guess would be September and it could take 6 months before its fully installed due to the onset of winter, and more hazardous work conditions. So the spire would be installed by March 2013.

The Glass would reach the top by December 2012.

So the tower would look complete by March 2013, so another 9 months.

Concrete is on the 93rd floor. Maybe if their still on their one floor per week schedule, then they can get it done earlier.

Glass is moving up very quickly, i could see it hitting the top around September- October.

Spire installation begins in the late summer.

I heard possibly this summer, even
Durst said so. Concrete isn't that far behind but maybe sooner. And as for the antenna, I wonder if they meant 6 months to build including the radome so without that, maybe itll be shorter
