They will bring up a mini crane for it's removal. Or some buildings window washing units are strong enough to lower the crane pieces.

It looks like it needs a little clean work up there, but anyway... I enjoyed this thread from beginning to the end, watching this building rise reminded me why I signed up on this forum.

Wow. From some angles, it almost looks "boring". Hard to believe its almost as tall as the old WTC and 2ifc. This thing is amazing. Congratulations to Kuwait on this. I feel almost bad that I joined SSC when this thing was already nearly complete.

Congratulations again Kuwait

Not sure what you mean exactly, but below is how I think they typically dismantle the cranes on tall buildings.

One of the tower cranes will likely dismantle the other. Then a small crane will be brought to the roof. The small crane will dismantle the second tower crane, then they will either dismantle the small crane and take it down a service elevator or a window washing boom will lower to the ground.
