The hotel portion of the tower has been on a "soft" open. Meaning not all rooms are open yet, 125 of the 339 hotel rooms on four of the levels 14 through 27 are open for business.

to remove the tower cranes, one will take down the other, and then a smaller crane will be hoisted to the roof deck, placed and then dismantle the other remaining crane. from there, depending on the size of the derrick crane, yet another smaller crane may be added to remove the first derrick. then, what's left, will be broken down on the roof deck and taken down via elevator or exterior elevator hoist car. it's a very sequenced process.

The top of the tower has outpaced the Tribune webcam again - this lovely lady has really raced skyward since the last transfer floor was completed.
