I walked by this project last weekend and I have to say that these buildings are turning out as some of my least favorite in SLU. The windows feel too small and the metal on metal on reflective glass makes the whole two block development feel cold and unwelcoming. I have to give credit to the landscape design, however. They have some top-notch stormwater design and I look forward to seeing all the plantings get established in a couple years

Here's the news: a crane at the Google campus has collapsed onto several cars on Mercer.



More pictures from the ground:



EDIT: Looks like it happened while the crane was being removed.



And there might be some damage to the building itself.

Yep, looks like a good deal of damage on the roof and facade.

I thought it was thunder, but it must have been this crane collapsing. I really hope there weren’t any injuries. Sheesh...when you think of all the cranes around, it’s kind of alarming.

It truly is. Hopefully the injured taken to hospital are not critically hurt. Per that article, a witness reported the crane snapped in half during a strong gust.

God this is awful. Reports two operators and two folks in a car perished. Prayers to all involved. We don't really understand the magnitude of what can happen with all these cranes until the worst happens.

I was there maybe 90 minutes before. At the time, no wind. There were a number of flatbed trucks idling near the scene. I can’t imagine they were dismantling the crane, though.

There was a separate crane to the north of the google building (like the types that are used to dismantle cranes).
