True. They will probably have to rebuild the top stories.

From that picture it looks like the crane is hauling something. Can local folks tell us is repair work ongoing? I don't expect to see this one start rising again for awhile, but is their at least work going on at the top?

Both cranes are working now, and new windbreak panels are being installed.

No, the spire will be finished as the last stage of the construction.

A series of videos on my technicals filling the West Tower Complex Federation.


This is the first part of the reports on the vertical transport of the Federation complex. Today, we are going to tell you about the unique system of two cabins in the same elevator shaft. ThyssenKrupp Elevator is the first and only manufacturer of elevator equipment, which has implemented the idea of the simultaneous motion of two cabins, moving independently of each other in the same elevator shaft. In one shaft, the two cabins are located one above the other and use the same rails and doors. The cabs can independently move up to the floors, located one above another. Each elevator has its own drive with a drive pulley, and its own counterweight.


In the Federation Tower West, there are two unique ThyssenKrupp lifts with transparent floors. This feature allows passengers to observe the elevator shaft of the tallest-to-be skyscraper in Europe as well as the movement of the second elevator cabin in the shaft.

P.S. Sorry for my english

A month passed and just three of those boards were replaced? That's freaking ridiculous.

They had some bureaucratic difficulties about cranes after a fire. Only a few days ago they got permission to use cranes.

It's a little ridiculous this spire will be nearly 500 feet let alone making it one of the tallest in the world

Oh man, those new boards suck. I'm guessing they were the cheapest replacements?

Looks like they found a billboard on the side of the road and chopped it up. At least its progress though...
