H/T user 10064, the core crane, TC 2, was dismantled this weekend. So there is only one main crane on the project left, TC 1, i.e. the crane whose base reaches to the ground floor. TC 1 will finish off topping the structure, and put up the sail and pole at the top of the wilshire grand, now that the core is cleared of the other crane.

Last weekend I was told by a worker that introduced himself as the one in charge of the steel workers. He said the sail and spire construction will start to rise in June and will take 16 weeks to complete.

He said there is a lot of prep work now that the crane has been removed from the core. When I asked when we will see steel rise above the top of the core he said June. And how long until the last piece of spire is installed. He said 16 weeks to complete the entire process. As posted above there is only one crane now. Tower crane # 1 and it just had the boom extended to 180' and will complete the top of the building.
