It is not topped out. When we talk about skybridge, we should say "observation bridge", which is located at the top of the hole.
There is a full ~12-14m high level to build yet.

Last level #101 could be called "roof level"

Mmmh.. first of all, you must have the vertical poles finished or half-way (9 poles + 2 corner "megacolumns"), the diagonals will be installed after.

Be pleased if you see those poles rising tomorrow
