The crane they took down is the original one that was there when the building was still a hole. It was a bit smaller than the other two. The one stacked up on the ground looks like a new one so maybe they are replacing rather than removing it.

Was on chicagotribune.com so I doubt it is just a rumor.

It's not a rumor now, the square hole is already confrimed.

Wow, if you look at the rendering, it looks like there will be an outdoor observation deck.

You make a really good point. Seldom are tall office buildings designed with street life in mind

that's what i was saying. They removed the large/new crane which was just installed there like 2 months ago, and now they remove it. I don't know why they do that though.

That crane might have just been for the bottom part, maybe?

I really liked the circle in the design, but kinda rejoice that it was changed to a bland square. Why? So that a western city can built one with the circle! I didnt like this nice futuristic building going up in China in the first place!!
