Cool pics.

The crane should be arriving soon, I suspect.

^Should we expect a large crawler on site until the core is tall enough to support a climbing tower crane?

An aerial of the site below. At that height, Salesforce, its really going to add a dynamic punch to the area.

A wonderful site in the morning








A sleeper left hanging


All together now


Note the hydraulics - this is what grabs the corners.


1/2 way there




Heading home - already stacking the tower sections.

^What a time to be alive! Thanks for the photos. I can't recall seeing a climbing tower crane being erected at this stage of construction before. The crane was inserted into the partially-built cores of the trio of new bldgs to the south; same with BMO Harris Tower.

That is the most insane crane. Unreal the sheer bulk and construction in itself.

And then there's that other crane there to assist in setting up the crane. Beast mode.

I cant believe that roller fit through the crawlspace.

Great set Harry!

Thanks everyone for the great updates
