Here on DenverInfill, I am dedicating this week to the tower crane. Our next crane spotting stop will be at The Confluence: a 34-story 288-unit apartment project going up at the edge of Confluence Park.

To me, tower cranes are beautiful pieces of infrastructure. Today, I could show you the new Confluence crane along with the site it’s sitting on, which is still a hole in the ground, but I decided to take a different perspective: the crane against a beautiful Colorado sunset.

As the sun was setting, three Potain tower cranes in Union Station lit up the sky with their red, green, and blue lights.
