This thread is about One World Trade Center not about other skyscrapers.

How are they going to get those cranes off of there? If they use one crane to lower the other cranes in parts then the final crane must dissassemble to the point where some sort of elevator can handle the parts.

Usually they just use a small crane that can be taken down on the elevator to lower the last tower crane that is just too big for the elevator.

Btw, there's also a crane on the slipform for the concrete inner core that is also going up right now inside of the tower. That makes 5 cranes in operation right now.

Glad to see the Sky Tree has reached its full height and is looking awesome too, which makes it a wonder of contemporary architecture in my opinion, cool photos !

This is Jicoo, a floating bar/lounge. It plies the waters of Tokyo Bay and makes periodic stops at various places to let customers on and off. I've never ridden it, but I've always wanted too; besides looking cool, one of my favorite bands performs here from time to time.
