How are they going to get that thing off the roof?

I was on another roof in Philly when I saw this:

Comcast Crane

It’s hard to see from the street, but that is a huge crane on the roof of the still under construction Comcast Building in Downtown Philadelphia.

How are they going to get it off the roof? There’s no way to carry it in pieces down through the building. I guess you could fly it off with a helicopter if the pieces were small enough, but that’s still a huge piece of machinery and heavy lift helicopters aren’t cheap.

I need to know.
