No, they are equal right now. 5 left on both sides.

Can we expect the two cranes to be removed right away after the rafters are all installed? Or is there still a bit of work left for them to do?

i believe they are due to be removed soon after. They will probably use the cranes to demobilize equipment and make any miscellaneous picks, then take them out.

Wonder if that scaffolding will get in the way?

Thought so too. Looking at the first rafter though, the outer brace of the scaffolding goes in front of the where the rafter will sit. An illusion too?

A rafter went in on the North side. 4 to go.

I assume it will take a little more time to put in any abutment pieces, and remove the "clamps" & those chair-looking things under the purlins.

How will they install the windows on the "roof" if the cranes are removed?

Mobile crane, and the technical term is the skylight.

Would be nice to see final four segments on each side installed this week.

They're so long now you can't even see the ends when looking through Brookfield Place. Amazing.

circled part looks weird, but I guess that might be because of those 'bracers' also note the recent paint job on the south side wing

Yeah, the braces are removed. But the angle between this pair of rafters seems to be slightly off - check the distance between their ends. Am I right or is it my imagination?

I think there are a lot of optical illusions happening at this angle. Depending on what's behind the rafters, you can get effects like this:



The two horizontal lines are perfectly straight and parallel, of course.

I know what optical illusions are - but I walk under these rafters twice daily and see them from different angles - and the two rafters I asked about seem to be off, from any angle. Unfortunately, I cannot post pictures to prove my case.

'Mysterious' boxes are temporary.
