Isn't this topped out already?? Or, is the antenna's platform's steel going to be considered the top out? Or, the parapet's glass? Isn't the steel on the corners the top-out? Looks topped out to me.

Spire or antenna, that's the question.

Or does it top out as soon as the entire construction reaches that height?

30 miles out in Morristown, New Jersey. One of farthest (best) views you can get, hard to find nowadays unless you bring your camera on aride at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson where you can only see One WTC 45 miles away on the horizon.

The plane happened to be there, I did not purposely plan that..

Most iconic view, the old wtc with the new, in my opinion.

In this photo you can se clearly how they are still erecting the last levels of steel.
Unless the picture is a few days old. But I think it is yesterday's. I saw some pictures of Carlos V in SSP, with yesterday's date, and you can see the same steel.
