Good progress on the crown lately. Can it be built without raising the crane again?

If they keep to plan, that centre crane will install a smaller crane that rests on the top of that crown ring. That is the final crane that will install the steel for the curve up of the crown, remove the existing crane, and finalise the cladding. This last crane is small enough to be disassembled by hand and taken down the elevator.

It is just me or is this building a bit phallic? Maybe that's one of the reasons I like it so much.
