Four Seasons Tower Crane Removal Milestone

Filed under ALL CONDOS, Lease Crutcher Lewis

To disassemble the tower crane, general contractor Lease Crutcher Lewis stationed one of the West Coast’s largest mobile cranes to the west of the building, along Western Avenue. Transportation of the mobile crane’s parts to the site required 14 semi-truckloads. Operators used the mobile crane first to remove the jib, counter jib, mast and operator’s cab, and then to dismantle sections of the tower crane from top to bottom, finishing with removal of the crane’s base. The tower crane’s components will be hauled away in 12 semi-truckloads. The mobile crane reached 300 feet from lower Western Avenue to the top of the First Avenue building, making it the highest, longest “pick” in the area. Lease Crutcher Lewis can now finish the interior spaces the crane had occupied on eight of the 21 floors.

Only 11 Private Residences remain available.
