Hurstville has one at the moment for The Avenue Office complex, but that will be coming down soon.

Brighton Le Sands also has one for an apartment project in Bay St.

You could lump them together to form a southern Sydney crane count.

There's one in between Mona Vale Road, Link Rd and Stanley Street in St Ives. Working on the big new 5/6 story apartment complex that's going up there.

there's 2 tower cranes at the John st cutting highrise units, ie, one on either side but the one at the city west apartments will be coming down very soon i'd say (and may be as I write). there has been a tower crane at evolve for about 2 weeks or so. there's also a couple of smaller floating cranes at the sydney wharf development (darling island you mentioned).

I'll have to do an exact check, but I'm pretty sure theres more that 3 in the gong. Though about 5 have finished recently so maybe I'm still counting them.

It's for The USYD Central Building by John Wardle Architects. It will front City Road & is adjacent to The Wentworth Building. Being constructed by The Abi Group & already 2 levels above ground.

I've noticed a second crane around the Sydney University site as well. There's also a crane at the Sydney Technology Park at Redfern.

On the train today, I noticed a crane in Kogarah as well opposite St George hospital.

I saw 3 cranes in Victoria Park area (1 in Zetland, 2 in Moore Park) this morning from the highway. Also 2 cranes in Mascot. I think they are all towers.

Heaps in Norwest Business Park.
