I have only seen the second rendering (the golden one) but ... since the first rendering is of the W side of the building, and the second shows only the E side - they could both be correct.

Still waiting

BIG crane - Oct 4

The semicircular "path" is for the counterweight to travel on when the crane rotates. This rig will be used to place the beams on the walls making the plaza.
