It can't enter construction phase before approval phase. What's happening now is a formality to study traffic and obtain more feedback.

Relax!

I think what they do is build up the parking level to below the beams and then take the beams out and build the next floor. the bracing is all temporary due to how the underground portion holds its self from falling in due to the floors taking up that stress

if you go back to january 2017 on the transbay block 5 webcam in San Francisco you can see more or less how its done (very similar bracing situation on that project)

The gravel fill from the hole - protects the rebar that is sticking up out of the piling. The top of the rebar will be at or near the top of the foundation mat.


The pink loops are the rebar sticking out of the piling.

Snapped a few shots on Sunday. My first visit to the project actually. Impressively large hole. Need to get back one day when they're working to add human scale. Definitely want to be around for the mat pour. Forum meet-up??

Renelle kind of going up overnight at this point. Amazing how quick when you don't have to do a foundation of any kind

Sleeper in the works ? (note the foundation poking up at the back).


Another foundation pile being un-graveled.


Dec 15

Old wooden pilings - the anaerobic clay preserves the wood very well.


The red wires go to strain gauges on the crossbeams.

Still can't wrap my head around how much better the Apparel Center looks with that new paint job. I think a lot of it is me not being used to seeing it in any color other than pukey-beige-mustard.

Great pics as always, Solar!

The Holiday Inn repaint was a good aesthetic move, IMO

Not sure if it looks better, just different. Atleast they took down the partly hidden Sun Times sign.

I would have loved it if it had been painted a super bright white.

Are the going to repaint or reclad the base too? Because it really clashes in a bad way right now. Not sure painting those bricks would end up looking that good either.....

Are they keeping the temporary bridge up for the south tower as well? I just dont see how else they will get equipment and supplies in and out of that space, except through the circle drive. That water has got to be way to shallow for a barge crane. That is going to be an engineering jawdrop when it happens.

Get an early start on the riverwalk?

Maybe, however keep in mind WPE is set back from the river and a plaza will go between the river and the tower so they might just not finish the plaza until WPS is complete and use the plaza for staging/getting equipment in and out.

From the renderings you can see that WPE will be more or less lined up with the parking structure for WPW leaving a decent amount of space to get in and out.
