These two photos, recently taken from the top of the tower crane, provide a fascinating perspective on our construction site.
In the first photo you can see the final preparations underway for the level three suspended slab pour – in laymen’s terms, the third level floor. The remaining concrete pour for this floor is scheduled for May 19 and so far it looks like the weather will cooperate.
Also, beginning next week forming will start on the fourth floor or level three ceiling with the first concrete pour scheduled for May 29, followed by a second and final completion of the level four floor on June 3.
The second photo looks out in the northwest direction towards the Broadway and Commercial Sky train station in the foreground and Downtown Vancouver in the background. This photo gives you a small taste of the future views from the sixth floor north facing building.
