World’s Shortest Tower Crane Still Waiting for Company at Union Station!

While all the grant applications, planning and approvals by such diverse bodies as the National Park Service are going on inside Union Station…a lonely sentinel stands guard over a dusty, noisy beginning of more construction. For several weeks, this first section of a looming tower has stayed its ground as though it was holding a parking place on a busy street. Just cranes. No trains. One day it should look better.
