the answer on removal is usually “with a bigger crane”.

Yeah, that makes sense. I guess I'm just curious about the actual details.

Since this is an internal crane, is it going to remain anchored to the bottom of the building foundation (and also to the tower core) throughout construction, with crane segments being sequentially added as the crane grows skyward with the building?

Or, will the crane grow skyward with the building by raising the crane's base and anchoring the crane's base to successively higher floors?

Crane removal seems like it would be harder in the first scenario. In either case, how are those internal structural gaps left behind by the vacated crane dealt with?

Tried to look some of this stuff up but couldn't find specific enough answers.
