This picture does a good job of fooling the viewer into thinking that the crane is taller than it really is. I'm not sure if that was the intent but it worked if it was.
On a side note. Has anything started between this one and the other side of Bently? I know there had been some prep work but it might have been for townhouse foundations.
None of them are very impressive. This looks a bit like a half-dozen other similar ones that have been built in the last decade or so.
I hate to be negative, but I was up in this area recently and I am concerned that when it is fully built out it will not be very good. If I had spent a half-million or more on one of the single family homes up there I would be concerned that I bought into what may well become a future low-end area all around me.
It would be a tight squeeze, it's pretty rare around here for tower cranes to be jacked up mid build. Usually they just build them full heigh because unfortunately our new buildings aren't that tall. The Trillium crane was jacked up and they only put the jacking gear on the tower section about a week prior to jacking. For the Paramount the building was built around the main tower crane, and it would lift the smaller support crane up two or three floors at a time.
Figured I'd make a thread about this development as well.
It's really coming along, there's one large apt/condo building near completion and one with the concrete framing up. There's a bunch of houses up too.
