Tower crane #2 is scheduled to go up by next weekend. I don't see the base installed yet.

So I have what might be a stupid question. If there is no plan to build a second tower in the future on the northwest corner of the block, then why dig that area? I may already know the answer but wanted to see if someone could chime in. Is it simply for an expanded parking garage underneath the plaza park?

The second tower would presumably use the same underground parking structure because the site of the second tower appears too small for a parking podium. It's probably more feasible to build the entire underground parking structure at the same time.

Passed by early this afternoon. There were crane sections lying at the north end of the site (bottom-center)
