280-foot crane arrives in downtown Milwaukee, will provide heavy lifting for BMO Tower construction

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A giant crane appearing on the Milwaukee skyline marks progress on yet another project that's reshaping the future of downtown. 

The 280-foot tall crane will provide the heavy lifting for crews building the 25-story BMO Tower.

Ten people were needed to get the crane into place. It's being weighed down by nearly 700,000 pounds of concrete.

The crane will grow as the project progresses, eventually reaching 360-feet.

The BMO Tower is expected to open late next year.
