Skyline

In addition to refreshing the Weigand construction camera every few hours, we also send our staff photographer and videographer downtown every couple of weeks for new photos of the Ash Skyline Plaza. 

We have a great bird's eye view from the Fifth Third building to north, and we also get great shots from the ground. It's exciting and exhilarating to watch our skyline reach new heights! Check out their latest below.

Have you seen the Big Ash Crane?


Skyline

OK, maybe that's a silly question. If you've been to downtown Fort Wayne in the last week, you know it's hard to NOT notice the huge tower crane at the Ash Skyline Plaza construction site. Some fun facts about what we lovingly call the Big Ash Crane:

  • Height: 220 feet
  • Horizontal boom length: 230 feet
  • Counterweight that offsets the picked load: 45,750 pounds
  • Maximum pick load: 17,600 pounds
  • Length of crane cable: 1,250 feet

Ironically, it took another very large crane to erect this one. Check out these pictures of the process from our friends at Weigand Construction.
