We are three weeks away from completing the installation of all exterior windows. From the photo you can see the process of installing windows on the east side as well as the recently completed west side above the main entrance of the building. Level 6 is scheduled for completion during the first week of November.
In other areas of the building – steel stud framing has been completed on levels 3-5. Work has started with the installation of the building envelope and insulation. The closure of interior walls with drywall has begun on level 1. The next significant visual exterior change will begin next week when the exterior long boarding – “siding” will start to be installed. The installation of exterior siding is scheduled to take two months.
