This is about a week old.



As the scaffolding and trusses start getting removed, you’ll start to be able to see the structure a little better soon.

The scaffold actually has a certain beauty to it.

Do you know when they are going to install the concrete pump installation, as well as the makeshift elevator for the workers?

Where might, especially the former, be install?

I’m not 100% but I think after this week’s pour (weds night?) they will set up the concrete pump. I think they previously weren’t able to do it because of all of the trusses and supports for the cantilever, but they have started the process of removing all of that. (You can see in the picture above that middle section of those trusses sticking out over Esquire have already been removed.)

Not sure about the man lift.

I’d guess that Floodgate is at least a few months away from demo, but I don’t know for sure.

Thanks for the information! I just hope, when they start the Floodgate, that they do not take as long as the Canopy.
