One thing that I will say is although I do like it a lot, it's much more glassy than I originally thought it was going to be. Not really a complaint just not what I was expecting.

How many floors until topped out? Is it within 5 to 10 floors?

Per this quote from Skylimitone on June 16th...

...if we're on schedule, they should either just be finishing up the penthouse, or working on the final "floor," which is really just the enclosed rooftop mechanicals.

That is to say, we're either topping out right now, or one floor shy of it.

They still have the 2nd floor of the penthouse duplex, which is mainly outdoor space.

Those asymmetric balconies are the coolest thing I've seen in a long while.

The fun stuff doesn't even show yet and it looks stunning already. The intricacy of the building is starting to show

Very exciting news that this is topping out. That black netting is a pretty dramatic act of showmanship on the part of the developers. Can't wait for them to draw the curtain back, as it were.

Agreed. The developer knows how to create drama for us. :-)

They still have one mechanical floor, so it's not quite at full height yet.

The netting is going up at least one more level, so it definitely looks like there's more to go.
