top out will be somewhere between in one day or in one month
@tier22+23: BEFORE topout they can only add the small wing of tier 23 to the spire
the small half wings are fixed on the spire AND the steal structure, that's why (@drew.magoo: thx for the plans ;-))

Now that are 3 wings in the spire that require cladding, berhaps meeting New Year's deadline is impossible, not that it was a formal deadline in the first place!
My quess is that it will be T/0 arounds Obama's takeover. I can imagine the news, it could be quite fitting actually, without any political connection that is.

Considering the current speed of the jacking process, I say it will top out within the next seven days! 2-4 weeks seems too much for just one jacking stage left.

no, because they've 2 more jackings to do. and before every jacking they've to install 3 sections of glass on the spire....and that takes definitely more than 7 days

We don't know what they have done today so far. Maybe it's already jacked up.

We need some updates fast

I'll be pleasantly surprised to see this top out before NYD, especially given the amount of time between the last jacking and this one. Keeping my fingers crossed though!

Am I the only one that will feel a little sense of remorse when it tops out? I've so loved watching it grow that knowing it won't grow further might be a little depressing. Oh well...
