Crane fun facts:

  • The crane’s weight is 700,000 pounds when fully assembled.
  • The 400’ height of the crane will exceed the overall height of the tallest building in Tucson.
  • Due to the excessive weight, the crane will need to be disassembled when moving across existing onsite utility tunnels and then reassembled to complete the steel erection.
  • Christmas lights will be installed on the boom of the crane with flashing strobe lights and orange checkered flag at highest point to alert helicopter providers of the obstruction.

Beginning August 1, watch the steel erection on our Webcam:
