A good amount of steel is up. But, still no crane installed per a check on the webcam. I'm just wondering if they are going to install a fixed crane why it hasn't happened yet and now they have to manuever it through the steel structure. This one is baffling me? Anyone have any insight?

There will be a crane, word is that they are not using a Amquip/ Maxim Crane but instead a Morrow crane....

$$ is the reason its not up yet

Thanks...that seems to make sense for the delay. I would of thought all that was in place prior to the start of construction. But, maybe it is like going up through a drive-thru window and ordering a cheeseburger.

Tower cranes cost ALOT of money to have on site...contractor probably is doing as much as possible to save $$ before needing the crane

Yes. You won't see it on on site unless they are ready to use it. I was making the assumption that the bid went out and the contract was signed early on in the the construction bidding process and that they were looking for a crane now or did a switcheroo because of price was odd.

Temple did this with Morgan Hall. I was living in 1300 at the time with a room that faced the site and they got through a decent number of floors with a mobile crane before finally putting up the tower crane.

There has been something that looks like a casson drill working in Chancellor st all week.
Could they be pouring an anchor for a tower crane?

Good question. I noticed that too on the webcam. I also noticed a mobile crane onsite too and there's been progress with that piece of equipment in laying down more steel and ribbed aluminum for each floor.

The garage (once a building) next to this is a graffiti-covered, blighted disaster. Hyatt Centric should call the city on them and get it declared. Force them to clean it up or sell.

Today, we have a yellow vertical segment of a crane onsite. Should see it fully assemble very soon.

The base seems to be in place now. Right where they have been drilling/pouring cassons for it the last few weeks. Going up

Watching the steel go up and I have an engineering question.

What are the yellow beams?
There has been a change in construction on the last floor plate, from poured in place to using precast planks. Are these are replacing steel as the lengthwise structural components? In which case the yellow beams are temporary braces until the planks go in?

This isnt something I have seen on other projects, but the fact that they are a different color certainly leads me to believe they are to be removed at the appropriate time.

I'm guessing, since these "I" beams are smaller/thinner than usual, the temporary yellow bars are meant to keep the thin vertical "I" beams from bending. Until they put in the permanent cross beams and complete the floor?
