What is the big rectangular swimming pool thingy in the middle of the office building lot.

That’s where the tower crane will go. It’s also where the elevator shafts will be after the building is complete. There will be five elevators within the central part of the building which you can see on the floor plan here:

Tower crane base installed at office building site today. :yahoo: It’s in a totally different location than I was expecting. It’s right next to Main Street.

In summary what does all of that say? 

It’s a development agreement between the city and Centennial American Properties where the city is going to pay for public improvements on and around the site. The developer is going to reimburse the city in the future as revenue from completion of the project kicks in.

So I guess they are going to wait to move the one from the apartment for the office building. 

There is a base for the crane for the office building already in place. The office building has already started construction.

Brasfield & Gorrie did state this is the most likely scenario which makes sense. The relocated crane will be 100 feet taller then it currently is right now though.

Probably a silly question but how do they erect these cranes. Do they start at the bottom and just keep adding sections to the top or do they lift the crane and slide another section underneath? I guess it depends on the height?

It definitely depends on the height. They’ll either start at the bottom and add sections using the boom crane until it’s topped out like you saw with the hotel or they’ll add sections to it as the building goes up using a hydraulic lift built within the tower crane itself like you see in the below pic:

gman, The crane base for the office building doesn't really look like it is attached to anything. It's just sitting there. Do you think it could be moved to where you thought it was going, or do you think this is where it will eventually go?

Where it’s at now is where it will stay. It will be attached to the base it’s currently sitting on once concrete gets poured where the rebar is.
