Btw, as to how many floors remain. No big floor remains however the cooling towers still remain to be built
I think 1 Floor to go and then the parapet.

They were stuck on the 92nd floor for 2 months and now again on the 104th floor for almost a month.

So I assume they will take their sweet ass time to finish the last floor and the parapet.

I won't be surprised if they decide to top the building out on September 11, 2012.

Perimeter steel is already up for floor 105, so only the parapet remains now to be built

I mean, there is only this and the parapet left. This floor shouldn't take that long and the parapet shouldn't either. The end of this month is very realistic if they don't move at snails pace.

You can't see the new steel from most angles, it was only two columns yesterday.

Better weather, great pictures, full update:

You're profile picture is perfect for you, troll. Like he said, you're always editing wikipedia with false facts. You have no idea what you're talking about so quit it.

Yeah you are right. I saw other pics, they got those columns there too.

So the perimeter columns are rising finally for the last floor and after that the parapet.

The steel that went up also accounts for about half of the parapet.

^Finally something true is being posted. Can't believe we're having so many pages plagued with mis-information and false data.

It looks like there are two steel beams of the parapet that have reached full height (Photo by njman):

Does that mean the building is topped out?

The height is now 1,368 feet, but to top out, all of the main beams for the parapet must be placed. The last one will be placed during a ceremony for its topping out. When it surpassed ESB on April 30, there were just two beams taller as well.
