The tower crane at the Camperdown Project on South Main Street is being reassembled in preparation for upper building assemblies.
Crane #5 made an appearance across from Fluor Field on the Homewood Suites construction site, seen here in final assembly assisted by a mobile boom crane.
Three cranes now rise over Greenville’s skyline: The Camperdown project (former Greenville News building site), The East Broad Street parking garage, and The Greene apartments (former Pendleton St Baptist Church location).
The Ogletree building required some work with the roof mounted air conditioning, so this crane was brought into North Main Street to get the job done.
How many cranes are needed to “change the tires” on a locomotive? The answer here is three, as long as one of them is big enough! This is the Republic Locomotive facility in Greenville near the Swamp Rabbit trail. It is likely that the entire power train is being rebuilt on this locomotive, as part of the Republic Locomotive normal line of work.
Earlier this week I posted a photo showing ducks seeking shelter under a bush. After taking that photo a
crane Great Blue Heron was pointed out to me .. given people are taking the time to point out photo opportunities I thought I should share the results .. some of you may remember this previously posted photo (all the way back to 2006) showing a Great Blue Heron in flight on the Reedy River.
PS: Thanks to our readers my mis-identification has been corrected. This is a Great Blue Heron in the photo.
