Just Came from the movies... I saw Sex and the City 2. I'm guessing this is the hotel the girls stayed at. FWI, hilarious movie!

Oh! The towers look great... A bit generic but good looking.

FWIW the term 'topped out' generally refers to the structure only, not specifically the highest point. Usually it's when the lift motor rooms have been completed, or the jump/slip form systems are being dismantled.

Your right, but on this forum we consider "Topped Out" to be when it has achieved its full height. This way there is less confusion about a buildings actual height. Labeling a building "T/O" when in fact there is still a spire, or papapet to be added, just adds confusion.
