The reason I mentioned "steel vs concrete?" was when a question was asked about when the curtain wall would be installed at "W" someone responded with some comment that the concrete had to dry, some 30 day test had to be done, or something like that, before the brackets that hold the curtain wall could be attached. Where with steel sometimes they wait for fireproofing, sometimes not.
Certainly in the case of "W" they have had plenty of time, YEARS, of pre-construction time to allow for any and all components to be ordered, checked, and stock piled, and the curtain wall is just starting to be installed, even though the concrete work is up around floor 20.
I make no claims to understanding the differences from one site to the next one, and there can be many.

^ What's all that empty space in the foreground? Hard to imagine such open land adjacent to Market Street.

This is the site of uCity Square. It's a large block where the University City High school used to sit, which has since been demolished. They are doing utility work now, and will be paving new roads soon for future development.

Took some picture while walking by this morning. Approaching one year since groundbreaking; with this new top section looks like we may top out by the end of the year

Looks nice with Comcast peeking out in the background.

Do we know if this has been fully leased out or if there is a primary tenant?

Yes, Cambridge Innovation Center, a start-up accelerator, is leasing 127,000 square feet, and Quroa, which is something similar, is leasing 15,000 square feet.
