Great news!
On the top? Just a light structure to get the cladding up to 492m, after the roof is finished. I think it's for hiding some equipments installed on the roof.

Working so fast

BTW, what means "7.12" ?

Yeah probably hiding some highly classified Anti-Air Gun Turret in case if terrorists attempt to bring the building down using commercial airplane.

lol i think they would certainly finish in 3 more days...but they might delay it so it will get a good date ( 09/09 )

still need to bring down the cranes?
lol gonna be fun to control the crane, sitting on 492+30 = 522m / higher than taipei 101
