This is a very nice slide-show (25 pictures) of the tallest structures in the world. After the first picture of the Burj Dubai, there are several of the CN Tower, followed by a number of other buildings:

1 more crane driver looking for a job.lol
yes i suppose its getting to stage where 3 cranes a crowd. 2 should be suffice and eventually just 1 crane. then the larger crane for steel section will be erected up there for a few months. then that will be taken down by smaller crane and then that crane will be dismantled and taken down in lift.
great snaps btw.

Wow great, one crane gone. Still level 146, I tink they will remove the crane first and than continue with the floorplates on that side which are now 2 floors behind. Maybe the next core setback will mean another crane gone? Probably yes. Than they would finish the concrete part with only one crane and put up a new one by side for the steel part. Interesting as hell

Lol yeah exactly. That dude is what i consider a typical american dude.
And i think he could have some more respect for the workers up there.
Like when he is saying: are you my friend now? Just shut up and keep your populair stuff for yourself fat ass.
But thanks for sharing the video! This thing is really huge, but damn what a work

Actually your right. I update it pretty stupid. Now is 146 floors high, you can count it on the pics. But the height is still official from floor 145. I guess I would better change floor count to official floor count
