Ok, there have been no reports of the topping out of One World Trade Center.
Wiki(unreliable source) said the topping out will be in august.
From What' I'll assume, maybe there will be another jump on Wednesday.

Now, Carlos, over at skyscraper page posted this a little while ago.
Not sure how true it is, don't get your hopes up

"my friend who works at the site tells me that the last beam will go up on July 3rd (not the 4th) and the rest of smaller beams in the coming months.....there!"

Since this is close to topping out does anyone know how and when the cranes will be taken down?

One crane will remain on top to erect the spire/antenna. It will also lower the second crane. The window washing unit or Building Maintenance Unit (BMU) will lower the last crane.

The climbing crane on the side should be done with its work by the fall.

The last crane should be gone by the end of the year with the completion of the spire.

Thanks, I'll probably catch the second crane being lowered
