And the developer confirmed there will be no crane for this project.

I think these pictures are an incredible illustration of how the old building is being preserved.

Based on your description of how they are building a concrete skeleton within the old structure, I wonder if they are just using the old floors and floor joists as framing for the new concrete floors; then maybe they will remove the old wood floors after the concrete columns and floors have sufficiently cured?
