I didn't want to speculate too much about the corner nodes untell I saw the first section go in.

After doing the math what we see in the pics is the bottom third of a corner node.

It's perfectly logical, the hight of the node section is roughly the same as the hight of the core steel column sections.

It is a crane after all, looks like a crawler. No idea what it's for though.

Not true. The John Hancock tower in Boston was built in the late 60s/early 70s and still looks like it was built just years ago.

I believe the question is can the crawler cranes now on site keep erecting steel. The answer is not for much longer, even the 18000 can only reach about 240 feet. Tower cranes well take over soon.

The bottom portion of the build is almost constructed! We should see this beauty rise now and some faster movement definitely when the snow stops.
