El Moore Construction Update: Week of June 23, 2014

The past few weeks have been busy ones on the El Moore site. Monahan Brothers and their selected contractors have been working on every floor of the building, adding foundational elements to the structure. One of the most easily visible signs of progress is the elevator tower, located to the left of the main building (if facing it). By June 25th, the tower was at the second floor level of the building. Insulation was being added to each level as it was completed.

The rooftop cabins have also made progress, with window frames going in and insulation applied to the inside of each room.

Plumbing and electrical are continuing to go in. The orange pipe, below, are part of the fire suppression supply lines. The blue cables are Ethernet cables that will run to each apartment as well as locations on each floor for wireless access points.

This pipe is part of the fire-suppression plan for the building.

A couple more pluses this week: Second Avenue finally returned to its original state – a 2-way street! For those of us navigating this street, this makes all kinds of sense. In addition, we now have designated bike lanes going both north and south. In addition, our recycling container has arrived, and we can finally recycle on site.
