Love the progress in the dig phase for 707 Terry. Seems much faster than many projects such as Westbank Twins

These excavation teams have had LOTS of practice. They ought to be very efficient by now!

I'm not a technical guy but some thoughts, not vs. any other site in particular...
--No groundwater to constantly fight
--Easy soil
--No hazmat (often the main reason for slowness)
--A simple shoring system
--A fast conveyor-based system
--A good ratio of controlled street frontage vs. sf of site

Good factors for efficient excavation/shoring listed above and I'd add pretty good access to I-5 for trucking. So nice not to have to deal with downtown or SLY (typo: SLU) traffic. The steep hills getting up there aren't great but at least the adjoining street frontages are nearly flat which helps trucking and other material loading/unloading.
Having O'Dea high school closed for the summer probably helped along with fairly simple neighbors (church owns several blocks and the Frye is an ally) - makes for easier negotiations on hauling hours.

Edit: no overhead wires to deal with except for the south edge of the site is also really nice. Alley has some wires but they're at least on the far side of alley so not much of an issue.

I hate SLY traffic as well. It’s so damned smug.

Excavation loadings are occurring in the wee hours! Saw trucks coming & going at 3AM the other night.

I hear that excavation companies used to charge extra to work at night, but now they prefer it due to traffic. If you have "simple neighbors" that's easier of course.

707 Terry, 10/19/18

Looks as if they may have bottomed out?

Maybe?

Shotcrete, good dirt, and an appropriately sized hole makes things go very quickly as evinced here.

I walked by the site earlier, and they've reached the bottom and put in the crane stub!

11/19/2018 Update:

The pit looks like 6 or 7 levels deep and the midblock crane stub appears for a Terex Peiner crane.
