9/27 If the top of the core is still sticking out, is this really the very top or will there be some kind of mech screen raising the height ~1 more floor?

I noticed in the weekly update that they are building structural core for the 20-21 stories which I presume is mechanical only as the building has been described as a 19-story building:

Interesting. I wonder when they top out? I'm also fascinated to see how/when the temporary support structure comes down. It's a pretty interesting construction
This past Thursday it looks like based on the posts on the last page.

Agree that it does have a mirror image in angles and especially in pictures. The facades that do not have the brise soleil reflect the surrounding buildings.
