I'm surprised by it also. The exact height is 96 feet 3 inches above the finished ground floor.

The steel appears to be the same design shape from the already installed core steel. So I think it will be added to the top of the south core. We'll know by tonight or tomorrow.

looks like it can topple over with high wind, its proper top-heavy.

That's a building. I was happy before, with the steel they were putting up. Now I'm ten times as happy. I don't know what they're doing. Wait yes I do, they're trying to build a skyscraper Daaah. And it seems to be getting closer to a 100 feet. They did all of this on the weekend good job. Now lets get the north core moving.
