Do the cranes ever operate at night or is it just a daylight activity?

Thanks,

Just during daylight. It would be way too dangerous to operate them at night.

The design is very futuristic and it fits with the other buildings, reflections are more than beautiful like waves of ocean.

Agree. I love the way it plays with the straight lines and curves on Goldman Sachs Tower, and the grid and setbacks on WFC.
