but thats just a guess, my engineering skill is pipe systems

About 10 more floors and it will start entering the "skyline changer" realm.

One thing about this tower is that - only once it is more or less finished we will be able to appreciate the design of it. Other towers - are easier to grasp even way before they are finished. this one- is pretty complicated.

This is definitely something different for NYC lol is it weird to say that my favorite feature is the reflective bubble at the bottom? Probably because it reminds me of the cloud gate in Chicago
Is that by any chance already put in or will that be one of the last things added to this building?
