The assembly of a stiffleg derrick at the top of Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto means days are numbered for the crane that built the 925 foot tower. For those of you who wonder how they get the crane down, today's Photo Of The Day, taken by UrbanToronto forum member nicetommy, shows you the answer. The derrick, painted yellow, will lower the crane down to ground level piece-by-piece.

Successively smaller derricks are then used until they have one small enough to be lowered in pieces by the tower's internal elevators. Word from the cevelopers is that the main crane will come down later this week. 

Developed by Talon International, the 57-storey condo and hotel was designed by Zeidler Partnership Architects.
