It's mentioned over at SSP that it's possible they have reached the highest floor that uses concrete and the curved section at the top is steel.

So the main portion of the building could be topping off.

That makes sense. A lot of buildings have similar circumstances. Makes it confusing, but oh well.

And the crown houses some sort of mechanicals.

Wouldn't it make more sense to wait until it's actually topped out? It would seem more impressive in the pictures, etc

I think it's a 'highest residential floor' topping out. The tower has not yet reached its full height in spite of the erroneous reporting. Extell's "topping out ceremony" seems like more of a marketing gimmick (something very Trumpian if you ask me!). I'm restoring the U/C status.

Shouldn't this building have been concrete only?
