Not so sure... maybe the arabtec sign on 3rd pic refers to the topping out ceremony of concrete back in December. Since then, those steel beams of about 6m have been put up on top (visible on last picture and on this Imre pic from Jan 8th. But has anybody a clue, if they reach full height?

Topped out means the top floor is a finished plate....crowns aren't floors, they are decor only. Looks topped out to me.

Nope topped out here means the tower has reached its full height (so includes the spire if there is one)

Wonder why Arabtec had a sign saying topping out ceremony if it's not topped with it's crown?

Because as you said, they topped out the floors. Plus they might have a different definition of topped out than what we have.

I have been looking at it these last days and to me it looks more like the steel section (roof feature)

In other words: this one's topped out? But a BMU wouldn't suit this tower as its very top. And what's the purpose of that beam on the other side?

That will probably be for the housing of the BMU, or in other words: The Fin we were talking about
