Drilling and “breaking” for Backstage

These pictures show site work today–1/9/12–at 1 The Esplanade, preparing the way for the Backstage Condominium from Castlepoint, Cityzen and Fernbrook Homes. The site will also house the underground parking for the adjacent L Tower. The work this week is focused on drilling caissons and “breaking” parts of the railway bridge structure that will be replaced by the Backstage podium. During construction work there are also some temporary holds on eastbound traffic but with every effort made to minimize delays.
