Can someone explain the reasoning on them only erecting steel on the west side? Does it have to do with the red crane not being able to do it successfully and instead waiting on the third tower crane?

Since they only have two more floors to install on the west side podium, I assume they want that complete before starting on the main tower. It would be more efficient to have a crane in the south west and north east corners to install the steel on the main tower.

The concrete people also need to consolidate their supplies (on top of the podium?) before the steel will be installed on the main tower.

Well does anyone know when this wonderful third crane will show up to erect the main tower? It's not going to take them much longer to finish erecting the current floor and last two on the west side...
