With five hammerhead tower cranes in full production mode, the Oceanwide Plaza development in the heart of downtown Los Angeles is rapidly progressing towards completion. The City of Angels is undergoing a development renaissance, not seen since the 1920s, with Morrow supplying tower cranes and hoists to many of these projects. Construction contractor Webcor Concrete required an equipment supplier they could trust and rely on over the next several years and with our solid past relationship Morrow was the obvious choice for this high-profile project.
Selection of the Liebherr models 316 EC-H 12 Litronic and 550 EC-H 20/40 Litronic were key for complete coverage on the 4.9-acre project site. These Morrow hammerhead cranes are a proven product on large scale, multi-crane applications like Oceanwide Plaza. Webcor Concrete is a strong believer in the quality and range of Morrow’s Liebherr products. Features including free standing heights, tie-in spacing, versatile climbing systems and heavy lifting capacities separate Liebherr cranes from the competition.
When completed the Oceanwide Plaza hotel will rise 49 stories with the two adjacent residential condominium towers at 40 stories. These buildings were designed on top of an eight-story podium featuring 160,000 square feet of retail space and parking spaces. Oceanwide Plaza development began construction in March 2016 and is projected to be completed in 2018.
