L Tower construction photos and comments from
Cityzen’s http://blog.mycondomylife.com/

“Daniel Libeskind’s building is elevating, accelerating and propelling forward steadily.
At L Tower, we’re pouring level 35 this week. Our crew is on a four-day cycle,
so a floor is being carried out every four days. Of course, it helps that the weather has been pleasant.”

“L Tower’s low-rise elevator door frames will be completed this week and will virtually wrap up by the end of next week. The cabs are currently being set up on the mid-rise elevators, and we’re putting finishing touches to them this week. Sooner than later, the high-rise elevator construction work will start soon.”

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.
