Probably not. That first load is probably the beams and joists for the first floor deck, which may take a bit of time to install. They have to build that first floor deck before starting the walls.

On second thought, it looks like they ARE starting to erect the wall columns. On the webcam, you can see the tall white pieces being erected along what will be the Walnut Street facade.

Anyone know what is the development on the corner of 40th Samson Streets? Across from the Dunkin Donuts, diagonally across from the Fresh Grocer.

If it's the corner I'm thinking of, it's going to be a Penn project. http://www.ocfrealty.com/naked-phill...om-tangen-hall

This one is coming along. Lowrise wings topped, roofed and cladding mostly done on the east wing. The tower on Walnut will top about year end.

This seems to have topped out, though they are still adding roof trusses.
Anyone know what the row of vertical steel down the center line is for?
It's not in the model.

Still a year and a half to go until it is ready for occupancy, though.

Looks like activity has resumed on this. The cladding on the south side is virtually complete, and there are workers visible on the cherry pickers and the roof.

Not just on this site, but in general after the heavy winds the city has had in the last 5 days I wonder if many different sites are being revisited to make sure everything is tied down tight. Did the S. Philly casino ever finally stop all activity?

This article is a week old but at that point, they had received a waiver to continue construction although there may have been some shenanigans related to the application.


‘Life-sustaining’ casino? Construction continued in South Philly despite Gov. Wolf’s coronavirus shutdown. At least two workers have tested positive.

https://www.inquirer.com/news/casino...-20200407.html

Quote:
Gilbane, an international development company, said it had been allowed to push ahead with construction by obtaining a waiver from the Wolf administration to continue operating. But the administration has given few details about how the waiver process works, and has refused repeated requests to provide a list of which businesses applied to reopen, what they said their life-sustaining business is, and why they were approved or denied.

Work continues-----

I walked by the site this morning and there was work going on. Although it didn't seem like all hands on deck there was definitely something more going on then just tying down loose odds and ends.

I'm not that surprised that Penn was able to get permission to go forward, but I wonder what their basis was. This hardly seems essential to me.
