I thought the proportions in TK's images were off, but not when I took a closer look at the renderings. I think the cooling tower is 2/3 of what it will reach.
according to the 'current scheme' we saw back in May step 6 was setting the cooling towers 1 & 2, followed by step 7 - erecting steel for cooling towers 3 & 4. We've been stuck on cooling tower 1 & 2 steel for months thus far & as far as I know they still haven't even set the first 2 cooling towers (or did they slip them in without me noticing?). So I'm thinking once they slide those in we'll see more cooling tower width steel go up & then the lantern. Though, that structure up there is awfully lantern shaped , so I'm wondering if the lantern begins at the same level as the second cooling tower & continues on up its designated height above the top of the tower.

Edit: going back & looking at step 10A (page 297 of this thread) the lantern does look to travel from roof height through both stages of cooling towers so that may be the lantern we see there. I still believe they'll be erecting the second set of cooling tower steel around that however

^ It's probably a little bit of both. They appear to be working inside out for the cooling towers, so the lantern probably shares steel with the tower at this point.

You HAVE to have precision with SEVEN KIDS. I find it hard enough to keep things straight with only ONE.

It is like unto football.

1 child = double coverage
2 children = man on man coverage
3-5 children = zone
6+ children = prevent

As others have said the new steel is the lantern and it is built through the cooling tower structure. I suppose they will start to add that as well. And I do believe this building is now taller then the comcast towers roof. You can see on the tiny connectors on the steel where the cooling tower stops. And the cooling tower is taller the comcast roof line, correct?

Here's another view. I think it's clear this is the spire, but I think the cooling tower will continue to grow another floor around it.

It's getting taller today. They're hoisting more beams up right now.

I believe the cooling tower steel has grown.

Yep, both the cooling tower and the lantern are now growing:
