July 12, 2022: A bit of a photo dump on removal of the west concourse crane at The Well.

Brief summary - seven buildings, A through G, each had their own tower crane, with the exception of Building G - the office tower, which had two. In addition to the eight traditional tower cranes, there were also two special set up cranes that were used in the construction of the concourse components between the office and residential towers - one at the east end of the concourse (which was removed a while ago), and one at the west end, which came down today. One attribute of these two cranes is that they had to be tethered to large concrete blocks when not in use, to prevent them from swinging around and crashing into the sides of the buildings.

Section of the mast on its way - seen from Draper Street.

The turntable is about to be loaded onto the truck, while the mast is waiting its turn.

Lots of crane bits in various locations - in the air, about to be placed on the truck, and already on the truck, on the north side of Wellington, ready to go:

Final image - the opening where the west concourse crane used to be - the top of the mobile crane boom can be seen.
