The building does not cross the property line on the west side according to the blueprints. So next to the water not over it.

I believe he means that it's below the waterline right now... otherwise yeah, definitely not built in the river

The pictures have been amazing, but they seriously don't do this tower justice in how massive it already feels... and we are only on the core.

^ Hmm, they don't show that black structure in the renderings. I kind of like it.

Those are the bases for the tower crane.

IIRC River Point's climbing crane was black.

It seems like luffing jib cranes in this town typically have black towers.

I believe someone said that the permit called for 1 crane but that would be awesome if we got 2 or more. For a project this big I don't think that would be out of the question.

Thanks for the updates!!

IIRC a Favco 760 can pick up an entire semi-trailers load of steel on one line which makes unloading much faster. And then when it comes to erecting I think they also put multiple pieces on one line and just drop them in one after another

EDIT:

Yup
