well, the little building fronting Mission and First that had not been part of the project, is now owned by Oceanwide.

Quote:
It is not clear what Oceanwide would like to do with this location, although a renovation for the building is planned, according to the general contractor’s (Webcor) web site. According to sources familiar with the location and Oceanwide’s development details, there are no plans to change the Oceanwide Center development proposal in any way.

here you can see one street-facing side of the building newly acquired by Oceanwide, with the Perilla restaurant

Looks like they covered the mission street side (Waldorf Astoria tower) in gravel otday. ?? Can't say that seems like a good thing. Anyone with more construction knowledge know what's up? Is anything up?

Could be many things but probably not bad. Forcing gravel into the ground can be part of soil "densification" or it could just be a temporary measure to keep down the mud and/or dust. I suspect it's the latter.

We've never been clear how they plan to proceed with this project--whether to build both towers simultaneously or one (probably the taller) first, then the other. If they do plan to build the taller tower fronting 1st St first and use the Mission-fronting site to stage equipment, spreading gravel on it would make a lot of sense.

Looks like, having spead out the gravel, they are bringing the equipment back:

I think my guess above is right: They are going to proceed on the taller tower fronting 1st St first and use the Mission site for equipment staging for a while. It remains to be seen when they will resume work there.

This could actually be good news: They may be wanting to clear as much equipment out of the 1st St site as possible to begin serious excavation.

Pedestrian, I think you're right. Thanks, my paranoia has subsided.
