They have 24/7 wind monitoring stations on site. When the wind increases past a certain level, the crane's operation is shut off and if (wind) passes the safety level, the crane arm is raised vertically to eleminate sway and danger of collapse.

Thanks and thanks for the explanations. I love the way the "old town" looks as well.

Is that a facade malfunction on the bottom row, 2nd window from the left? Looks like it's missing it's bottom silver trim.

The latest batch of photos are awesome btw
