Here are some small updates from my drive down Carondelet this morning:
1. 845(ish) Carondelet - The building next to Global Green and across from Stephen's Garage that is supposed to be a restaurant and gym now has "caution" tape blocking off the sidewalk. Hopefully they'll get started on removing all the debris soon (collapsed building behind the facade). Here's the googlemaps link:
- Note the swinging pool palace next door...Umm get me the hookup!
2. 701 Carondelet - What I refer to as the old school book depository (across from Ditcharo's) looks like they're almost done sheet rocking. Can't wait til they pressure wash the exterior!
3. Drury Inn - They removed the large mound of dirt that had accumulated during the drilling of the test pile. Also saw an 18 wheeler delivering what looked to be a bunch of rebar. I assume this is for the static piles or whatever you called them..can't remember (drilling hole, insert concrete. as opposed to driving piles).
