decking to support the next pour of the next level of the garage. You rarely get to see the top of it but obviously you can here since its 40 feet below the sidewalk.

If you zoom your browser window up by 200-300%, you can better see the rebar on top of the black decking in the last photo posted. Also, I've been wondering what that curve is just right of center, and now it makes sense: it's the garage entry/exit ramp curving down to a lower parking level.

They are pouring today. It will be interesting to see how they work around those horizontal braces. Some of the rebar for future building columns is already sitting right next to the lower braces.

1 floor per week would get us to at/above ground by early Sept, but just looking back I see the foundation pour was a solid month back.

I am again reminded how huge this site is/the length of the building will be. It's really going to be tremendous for that block (and the block between 15th and 16th....)

^ Couldn't agree more. To think that it's been over 25 years since the One Meridian Fire which killed this area.

Considering what its taken to get this building to this point, if what you say is true, then that's a very scary statement.
