Sure looks like a mobile crane on the NBC live webcam: http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/...274808381.html

Maybe its going to help assemble the bad boy? Or maybe they will keep adding more mobile cranes, at this point they will use one until its topped out, do 1,121ft mobile cranes exist? JK.

No. But they could have progressively larger cranes holding each other up in the air!

Cheers,

But, is that all there is?

[Let's see how many Peggy Lee fans we have here. ]

Anyone know how much they're actually saving by not having the tower crane on site to this point? Anyone know of an approximate cost per day/week/month or however it's priced? It seems like other projects on here have gotten their tower cranes up far earlier in the process.

Although I don't know much about construction of this sort, I do know that project managers schedule things like the placement of a tower crane very carefully, making sure that everything can happen efficiently and in the proper sequence. It may well be that at (or up to) this point, a tower crane would simply be in the way of work that has to be done in the "bathtub."

Never seen a thread where this many fellow forumers are getting bent out of shape because of no crane. Dammit I am one of them.

Let us all rejoice that Philly has supertall under construction.

@shakman...dude, there is a running bet between us posters on whether the FMC tower or CITC would climb higher by the end of the year.

Some floor decking is going up where the new beams were placed, probably for the parking incline to the basement.
