Construction Update 10-25-19

Park District

The Abbot

This week, wall panels continued to be placed on level 8. Joisting and decking for level 9 will follow with the first level 9 pour expected to occur next week. The tower crane has been re-inspected and is back in service on the South core, which is making its way to the 12th floor. The North core work is on hold pending review of an engineer’s report which is expected in the near future.

Underground utility work is expected to take place the week of 11/4. This will necessitate a lane closure of Grand River during a portion of the work to allow connections to take place. As the details of the plan are set, more information will be provided.

The Graduate Hotel

The 3rd floor concrete was poured today. The final pour for the 3rd floor is planned to occur within the next two weeks. Metal panels will be installed as the project makes its way upward. Work on the underground utilities on site is nearly completion, with slab-on-grade concrete pours anticipated for the near future.
