The question as to whether or not this building is really topped out has come up before and I'm also confused about it. If you look at the final rendering on page 1 of this long thread you'll notice that the top of the building has a distinctive shape that seems to flare out at the very top but the photos on these latest posts don't seem to look the same way. It's possible that it's difficult to get a good shot from a high enough vantage point so that we can't quite see how it really looks since the photos all seem to be from the bottom at ground level. So I'm wondering, does anyone know if there's going to be additional work on the crown so that it will match the final rendering or perhaps the crown has been modified and I just didn't notice. Thanks and I'd appreciate any information on the subject. Oh, and it is a beautiful building by the way!

This building always makes me think of an old rocket design, like the V2:

That didn't take too long. Construction speed was pretty fast. Just need to see it fully dressed in glass
