BVictor says he's heard rumors that the second crane will be up/constructed in roughly three weeks.

I am not really liking the design of this building much but the height I guess is sweet. When is the schedule completion of this building by the way?

I'm going to post this again since there's a lot of questions still:

Trump International Hotel & Tower (late 2008-09)
Roof 344m, 1131ft
Spire 415m, 1362ft
92 floors





Emporis construction photos:

Nice, somewhat-updated webcam of the construction scene as well as videos/sounds/images:

Hehe. I'm weird statement after the whole Chicago-Petronas feud. Realistically though, American skyscrapers are new to the mega-spire game.
