Yeah I didn't check it for a few days and was stunned that they almost completed the entire oval and built a good part of the white steel at the entrance.
Making great progress. Haven't check it in about a week so much done in so lil' time.
Anyone think they will actually complete the circle? Wouldn't they need to leave a space to get trucks in with steel and a place to get the cranes out? Then probably finish the rest from the outside.

there will be plenty of room for trucks and things to drive through the beams. you may have a point about the cranes
They will probably leave one part of the circle incomplete so they can get in and out and finish that part last.

The cranes are disassembled into relatively small sections that can fit on to flatbed trailers before they're transported. When they're done with the cranes they'll break them down where they sit and roll them out piece by piece. I think even with the lower mezzanine complete there will be a couple of areas where loaded semi-rigs can fit through.
