"The Independent is officially topped out", according to the sales office.

It seems like construction has gotten super slow on this last part. I guess because the top is more complicated.

I'm not sure this is true, they poured five slabs in less than a month. It was hard to follow via the construction cam due to the view angle - the lower mechanical floors are completely obscured.

Went to the Urban Space office today was told that it may be a year (May 2019) before tier 3 moves in. They said they would start at the lower tier 1 and move in 3 floors at a time. This Sunday hard hat tours of the building floors 9, 10, 35 and tier 3 floor 47 if you live on tier 3 and floor 57 if you live on the tier 4.

Crazy that I can see this baby all the way from like Wells Branch on Mopac. Can't wait until it's all finished and lit up.

Yes. It was really cool to check out. We were supposed to go to the top tier, but the weather didn't allow for it.

Judging by the webcam today, it looks like The Independent has reached its final height.

Yep. It was reported recently by their marketing that it had topped out. Traditionally, that means that all of the structural construction has been completed, either frame concrete pouring or steel framing. Still, I would expect that the mechanical screen will overrun a bit over the top of the concrete core that's poking above the main roof since it's meant to conceal the mechanical spaces up there. Also, once that screenwall goes up it'll be visible from the street up past the main roof height, which is 643 feet. The mechanical screen will actually rise 47 feet above the main roof, and closer to the edge than the elevator core is.
