Also, the scary things is that antenna is going to be nearly twice the height as the cranes are, it's going to look so weird..

Spandrels are the HORIZONTAL connectors to the VERTICAL columns. If you're still lost, then I suggest you consult a basic building construction textbook.

My thinking exactly. Then the tower's exoskeleton will truly be complete, making its defining mark in the skyline.

add a whip line with ball on the end of the rooster sheave. both cranes have them.

neither crane has a hook block with a two part line, both lines on each crane are one part.

otherwise it looks really darn good. nice work.
