oww, that is a big hole.

Does anyone know if they are replacing the second crane?

Also, how many feet left? 150?

No idea when they're replacing the second crane. But you're right, about 150 feet left.

At that rate, they may not need the second crane. They seem to be making excellent progress without it

Yeah, doesn't seem like they need it at all at the moment. They haven't been raising the larger blue netting sections since the accident. I worried they would have to stop since it takes two cranes to lift them. Apparently there not worried about it.

I'm guessing they'll need to remove the current crane when they reach the roof so they can finish installing all the mechanical equipment. The second crane would dismantle the current one, then lift all the heavy mech equipment to the top. Then a smaller crane or window washing unit would dismantle the last tower crane.

But there definitely going to use the second crane position at some point. Otherwise they would have removed it completely.

Around 255 m by now, so the 12th building in the city.
