That crane guy has balls of steel!

Cracking shots though, Kanyes pics also really give a sense of how massive this building is!

I'm afraid that is because the tower is gigantic.

Looking at the pics above, though, it looks like the winds are really cold at the top. Look at all the workers hunched down, arms crossed to stay warm.
