9-7-18 (continued)

20. Finally! Some color to work with! But it's short-lived - it's a liner to keep moisture away from the concrete floor that's scheduled to be poured tomorrow (9/12).

21. The last time you saw this shot, it was all wooden frames that resulted in this curved concrete wall.

22-33. Beamwork. Personal favorite: the Sign-A-Rama one. Distant second: the one that looks like a cross (but only because the crane operator is in the shot).

34,35. End of the day

1. You saw this stairwell at night WITH scaffolding in an earlier post. This is without.


2,3,4. The cement pumper at work in various locations

5. The only question I can think of asking about this iimage has this answer: to get to the other side.


6. This truck picked up the scaffolding and a bunch of other (excess?) building materials.

7. I wondered what all these wood frames were for. As far as I can tell, two long rows of them were built about a wall's depth from each other and concrete was pumped between them. The concrete hardened and the frames were removed. The result - as you probably guessed from my "wall's depth" remark - was a concrete wall.


8. The next day - with the sun almost directly overhead - I took this shot to show the basement definition created by its new walls.


9-19.  The big crane is back to hoist more steel beams into place (OK - one's not a steel beam and I had a little fun with the next-to-last one). In #12, Superman and Robin (huh?) showed up to watch.

Just hit "attachments and other options" below. Then hit the box that says "choose file". Find the file on your local Drive and upload. You would only use the image tags if you are linking to a picture that is already uploaded to the internet another website. It looks like you're trying to use the image tags when you should be uploading the image here. Hope that helps.

I've never been able to load photos to this website. The process is unusual and very difficult for me

Lots of houses get vinyl siding, but I consider this particular project to be very significant due to it's prominent location.  This is a major improvement for the core Central Ave corridor

More FIVES & FLUBS (with no end in sight)

The stairwell is at a second-story level now (plus one floor is in the basement). From my view, it's almost at the same height as the two-story buildings this one replaces. I could never see the Greater BCA sign or the Noches de Colombia restaurant before demolition occurred and now I'm going back to not seeing them - no big deal, but losing the river will be.................good ol' progress.

They're going to build everything up to the second floor before continuing with the stairwell, which will go up to the fifth floor - the finished building's height.

That stairwell is 3 stories above grade, so far. And how tall is the building going to be ? At least 5 stories, I'm sure.  Your fears are confirmed, goodbye river view from your penthouse apartment.
Exactly. There could be a sudden downdraft during a thunderstorm, in which an airplane suddenly loses 400 feet altitude. And then it's all over.
