Assuming that the steel for 102 and 103 goes up separately, I can see as many as three to the roof (though the last two or three jumps have gone up multiple floors each time, so I think it's probable the next one will as well), but surely the last two floors will be one jump. It's my guess that, beginning at 104, at each corner there will be a prefabricated node where the two angled columns and the center column converge, which looks like it will be two floors tall (ending at the roof).
So I stand by my guess of two to the roof (though I'll say as many as three is possible).
EDIT: Well, actually I'm going to recant and say it will probably be two more then
the nodes. I was under the impression the previous jump had gone from 92M to 100, but it appears they went from 93 to 100. So comparing Otie's last diagram
to his most recent one
, then proportionally I'm going to say three more jumps to the roof. Of course I suppose it's possible they could put some monster 53' columns on, but I guess I shouldn't get my hopes up
By the way, Otie, do you think you could include those angled columns inside the building (the ones that connect the perimeter to the core) in your next diagram? I'm very interested to see how large those are compared to the structure as a whole.
EDIT 2: Hey, isn't glass supposed to resume today? We've spent so much time watching steel go up, it'll be nice to finally have something else to look forward to as well
