I hope that this tower doesn't get any more delays at all.
It has seen more than enough of them already!
First time I noticed the crane from the East Side.
How are they going to get concrete to upper floors? Will they install one of those concrete pump cranes or use buckets?
I think they'll use buckets.
Hopefully, the steel has resumed rising again.
They already have at least one pump in the core.
Or are those both pumps? Or are they pumps at all? ZEN?! HELP!
The green thing looks like a concrete pump. The other one is some sort of crane.
The actual pump is at street level, ya can push cement up but ya can't suck it up. The only limit to how high cement can be pumped is the horse power of the engine driving the pump.
The green one does look like it has a cement pipe on the boom so it'll be used for distribution.
The red one is a crane, I have seen the same thing mounted on trucks that deliver building material.

New official pictures and a few words about the Blue "Cocoon Safety System"
Any information how high the core is now? EarthCam pictures showed high concrete trucks activity during the last few weeks...
I went back and studied some pics and it looks like the core is at or near the 4th floor.
I guess the question of how high the core steel can go before being encased in concrete is now answered 150 feet.

I've always wondered what the blue netting is for. Very interesting!
