The possibility of having 21 cranes in the air at once is not possible as Centene, SLU Hospital's, Muny and at least one of Ballpark Village's cranes will come down. The last one of these is expected to come down in Early April. Therefore, we have a chance at having 16 cranes in the air over St. Louis in August of this year.
That number could either grow or shrink depending on rate of construction of the projects and if any surprise cranes pop up across the area. I didn't know COCA or the Muny was supposed to have a Tower Crane but sure enough, they have one.
Here are some photos of the current cranes...
