As I noted above, once the forms move up, the next set of hangers for 3 more floors will be installed, to be followed by concrete pours for the missing corner pieces that you see in the photo (each set of floors have cantilever support from the angled hangers).

If you look at the photo I posted, you'll note that corner columns are for the two floors only (they are reinforced concrete btw), while the third floor may not require a corner column*... its ceiling is the 4th floor slab which will hang from the bottom of the next set of hangers*.

*Don't see any corner column forms for the third floor .. so that's my theory ;-).

You're right, the height increase is vital because then the top section will be symmetrical with the others. I don't understand why the city would refuse such a minor increase, but curiouser things have happened.
For any of us to be around to see the finished product, these guys will have to pick up the pace.

This thing is breaking the sound barrier now (compared to a few months/years ago ;-).

Walls poured and forms for the next floor slab underway.

Forming up some more (missing) corners. At some point I knew why the corners, supported by the hangers, were left until later to be poured... but now I've totally forgotten.

Walls and columns were poured last Wednesday evening, and today (Wednesday) they are pouring the the next floor … never seen that accomplished here in one week.

They have also placed the rebar cages for the next mega-columns and inner core (elevators). Gob-smacked lol.
