Did this crane do the cladding? How long a delay are we talking about? I was thinking a month maybe.

At least a month I'd say, though that is just my guess

no.

they do that with a gin pole or small hoist.

id say at least a month delay to any new crane work.

you know, the hardest part of this is going to be how to foundation the crane. if they have to build a new foundation it will take a LONG time

I don't think they need a new fundation; they can use the original one. The problem delaying it is the new anchoring to the building; mostly in the areas they already have glass installed.... plus to get back access to the building.

City Expects To Begin One57 crane Rescue Tomorrow

Quote:
The city now has a plan to retrieve the dangling crane at One57, the Wall Street Journal reported. Work is expected to begin tomorrow — and will take an estimated 36 hours, according to the New York Observer’s Twitter feed.

The plan calls for a worker to rotate the entire crane using a small hand crank, turning the damaged boom toward the building. Then cables would be used to secure the boom to 10- to 12-foot steel arms installed near the top of the condominium tower on West 57th Street, the people said.

Later, a derrick would be installed near the top of the building, and used to lower the crane boom to the ground. Another boom would be raised so that construction work on the tower could continue, according to a person briefed on the plan.

The city is reviewing the plan, which still could be changed or delayed. Work could begin as early as Friday and be completed 48 hours later, the people said.


A Department of Buildings spokesperson declined the Journal’s request for comment.

Extell, the developer of One57, could face lawsuits from surrounding businesses from the incident, as The Real Deal told you previously.

Are they kidding? I'm sure there's a lot more damage to that crane than just replacing the boom.

It seems they are very lucky that the boom is the only part that need replacement.

What amazes me is that the wind can exert so much force on these lattice booms. I mean they are mostly empty space that the air can pass right through. It's not like the booms are clad in sheet metal.

Great news if it turns out to be such a quick and simple fix, but I too am skeptical. ...48 hours? Really?

I am willing to guess you don't remember that major accident that happened during the construction of Milwaukee Brewers current stadium Miller Park?

waking up this morning and hitting refresh on the live feed cam and i notice they have already rotated the crane around putting the damaged boom next to the building. This should be an exciting day in this area.

Why do they even need a crane to begin with?

The building is topped out. Now all they have to do is get the cladding finished.

Can't they use the elevator to get that up?

Looks like they've turned the crane in order to fasten the boom to the building:

Iirc there is still some mech equipment that requires a crane in order to be transported up there.

The one thing I really notice is that One57 makes all the other buildings around it look small and worthless :-(
