Raker Beams coming out

The first of the "raker beams" have been cut out and removed. It would appear that while the top was idle they have been busy finishing up the basement floors ( which now hold the walls apart ).



Today

- N tower has a 2nd set of anchors on the core - was "jumped" again.

Seems to be dragging a bit, progress has really slowed. Maybe that is the underground work taking place, as you say? But this thing looks maybe 2 or 3 floors higher than in late August.

They are pumping concrete on the top of the core now.

Steel is also being assembled at the same time.

What is not readily apparent from the ground is the floors are being finished, wire mesh & concrete, which probably takes all the concrete pump's time. To date 5 floors ( above street level ) have been completed.
