FAA submission for a tower crane: https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=285090436&row=18
Interesting, crane height mentions 1119ft. Isn’t it a bit tall for a building that’s supposed to be 762ft?
Yeah that does seem ridiculous and almost impossible for a crane to be that high at the top even with the boom sticking straight up. It only makes sense if this is based off of the old 963 ft design. I doubt it will go back to that height though.
Is this faa listing accurate/up to date? I see a lot of 2016 dates on there which would make sense for when they were planning the taller tower.
I don’t believe this particular form is up to date. While I was browsing the evaluation list, the heights were different.
It will be great to see that blank concrete wall go away once this one goes up.

I couldn’t grab a pic because the train was coming but this should be moved to U/C. It’s at least 2 floors above ground now.
