The white beam Obama signed is going up. This is not a part of the topping out ceremony according to ABC.

Guys we are nowhere near completed why does everyone think this is the "Topping out beam"? they still have to put more spandrel beams in and the top spandrel beams aren't even started yet from what i see

Beam is installed, now the scaffolding is lifted.. so we cannot make a countdown for the spandrel beams since they will be out of view..

Top levels of spandrel beams are going up. These go on top though and are twice as wide, so only 8 spandrel beams are on the very top level.

After the official top out, the next milestone should be reaching the differently-textured glass on the mech. floors.

I'm ready for the glass to start making some big jumps again. Then it will really start looking huge.

And sorry for this being off topic. ThatOneGuy, I don't know if you know this, but under your username, "BANNNED" has an extra "N" in it.

When the last steel beam is put in place, unless they count the beacon

Some other news: I'm going to make six [maybe more if I feel like it] 500x500 sized renders of my model with its new cooling towers and permanent rooftop crane.
Not the topping out beam

Looks like they've completed all levels of spandrell beams except the very top two. They raised the blue netting all along the Eastern facade where just the final ~8 feet are exposed.
