Surprisingly you can see that crane from all over the city. I even saw it from 196 out by the Beltline. I think it's because it's on the hill vs down in the valley where most of downtown and Monroe North lie. 

Will there be a tower crane for the new Spectrum ramp?

The crane on the hill has to be the hightest vantage point in west Michigan. 

Makes me wonder how far can the operator actually see from there and how far can the crane be seen. I know DT GR on a clear day is visible from Holland Twp., on the highway, so maybe this might get a glimpse of the lakeshore(?) From that high up.

That would be cool to see. Plus I think this crane is not at full height yet. Doesn't seem high enough for a 12 story building.

I heard in the past you can see the lake from the penthouses at River House.  I have no idea  if that is true or not though...

No, you can't see the lake. But you can see small mounds on the horizon that I think are tree-covered sand dunes near Grand Haven.  At least, I've never seen the lake from the couple of times I've been in one of the penthouses. 

I saw this crane from 131 way up in Comstock Park area coming South. Crazy. lol.
