last year; my last day was the monday before thanksgiving.
I am sure the design has changed since then, but the zoning determination would not have because Phase One is included in it.

Parking Palooza - 8 floors and counting

It's so weird leaving the parking garage for later. Is this a common thing that I just haven't noticed? Does anybody know at what point they will start building it? Will they wait for complete T/O or somewhere in the middle? Either way, very cool project.

Dont know for a fact but with this design it kinda made sense to add it later. Def sped up the process with the base. Original plans were to install a 2nd crane by Oct to begin work on the structure.

I was down in this area yesterday and man o man is this thing going to command a presence. All the picture and updates are amazing, but this building feels so much larger in person. It's only what, 11, 12 stories off the ground and it already feels substantial, at it's full height it's going to soar, thinking about it's big brother makes my head spin. We're getting a gem here.

Can anyone explain the lighter concrete near what will eventually be the feet of the parking ramps? Almost look like temporary patches.

I was gonna say it's puddling of the higher strength column/wall concrete in the slab, but I'm not so sure.

I wonder if it's less dense or something to make it easier to maneuver the rebar at a different time.

My guess - and only a guess - is that the concrete has been dressed (either ground or grouted) at the point the forms were for the angled ramp. You can see a similar discoloration on the blank wall.

The second tower crane will go up early September after the existing tower crane jumped.

KWILLSKYLINE Aug 20, 2017 12:14 AM

Thanks. Cant wait for a second crane. Any chance that crane remains for tower 4?

The chance of that is zero. If they build tower 4 it will be a totally separate project. There is no scenario in which keeping a crane standing on a neighboring parcel is more economical than just assembling a fresh one exactly where you need it. They put these things up in a weekend, assembly is not the defining cost, day to day rent for the equipment is. If the two projects are even staggered by a few weeks it's definitely cheaper just to assemble a new crane exactly where you need it than to leave the previous one standing and pay weeks of extra rent.

This thing is rising rather quickly.

KWILLSKYLINE Aug 26, 2017 5:03 PM

Tower four? can you please start in this cycle?
