Crane count

Don't know what's happened to the original thread??

In the picture there are now 4 red cranes on Liverpool 1, 2 green ones in Hanover St. along with the Pierse crane in Duke St. 2 on the Kings Dock hotels, one on Vermont Tower.

I can't tell, Circle 109 blocks my view in that direction. The Radio City Tower only just gets over the top of it!

Righto I'll have a go at this based on what I've seen this morning, any recounts welcome.

Alexander Tower-1
West Tower-1
St. Pauls-2
Liverpool One-9 white cranes, 4 red cranes, 1 blue, 2 green, 16 in total
Pierse-1
Elysian Fields-1
Kings Dock hotels-2
L1-4
Vermont Tower-1


Total=29

Do people think Columbus Quay is too far out of town to be included? if not then this count will also have to include the crane which I think is by Grafton St. not far from Brunswick Station.

The one down the bottom of duke street isnt pierse (that is next door).

However, I walked past the Pierse site this morning and noticed a base for a tower crane.

Does that push us over 30 again?

It's currently being used for demolision, but as soon as that's done with I'm sure they'll keep it in place for the rebuild of the engineering building, so I reckon it counts..

BB, I thought that this site at the bottom end of Duke St. was the Pierse site, this is the rear of the site I'm referring to, taken from the top of the Hanover St. car park.







Tom, that'll do for me!! 30 it is, what about Columbus Quay??

Ah, you could be right Doug. I crossed my own wires. The site next door is an Iliad development. That'll add a tower crane by the end of the week.

we should not be allowed to count the 4 next to the baltic fleet as they are redundant!
