Not quite, the base of the crawler is there but they still have to set up the boom

Not exactly. The core takes more than half of the gravity load but the perimeter steel takes most of the wind load. They work together, especially in the event of an earthquake.

There probably is going to be enough steel in the core walls for it to stand on it's own, but I wouldn't want to test that.

Doesn't look like the pad for the 18000 is big enough for a Max-ER kit.

They make two different Max-ER kits. One has wheels and the other hangs so it wouldn't require a larger pad.

Good point. New York Crane had a 16000 out in PA with hanging weights (not to get off topic) so maybe we will see the hanging

This building is coming along very nicely, I cannot wait to go to New York when it's complete. The only thing I am not a big fan of is the spire.

Could anybody explain to me how they can raise the cranes to the top like that? What process is involved?

Thanks

It's due to the angle and lighting. Also sort of like placing a thin sheet over your head -- you can see out somewhat, but no one can see your face.
