Yeah. Clear to see why they're there. Just wondering as it seems like they were cemented in.

Yeah, presumably required because of the need to hold back the immense lateral force on that shoring exerted by the neighboring high-rise, and only safe to be cut and removed once the reinforced concrete wall to be poured has sufficiently cured, and perhaps even is supported laterally by the floor to be poured above.

I'll give them 23 million for it, but not a penny more. Due to inflation, the price of fuel for my Gulf Stream G700 is through the roof. Time for some austerity.

Beautiful shots from YIMBY. And foliage is late this year, the park has hardly turned.

From some angles, I have been less than impressed with the way this project has come out. But I shot this today and think it looks great from the street:

And the restored coffee shop facade looks fantastic:
