Here's the first piece of the lifted spire going in place:



I'm making a time-lapse movie of the entire installation. Hopefully it comes out. The weather's kind of murky.

Why did they dismantle the crane? It would have been easier to install the spire.

The crane couldn't reach the height necessary to install the spire. It can only be done with a helicopter.
