More glass arrived today:


Thus, the red crane was back:





Here's the brick work I mentioned before:


If this is to be a set-back balcony, why will it be behind glass? Check out the cleats:

I'd swear I have seen those walls built in different places in the building and then moved later.

well lets just say this well be an interested elaborate part of the building..... it is gonna involve units with bullnose like the ones hanging on the lower starter units and units with handrail extensions too hide the brick wall. Also units will be set on top of the brick wall, basically it is an aggressive architechnical engineering.....

Can anyone comment on the curtian construction

What types of load clips are those and what is a mullion wall? Does anyone know the particulars? I am trying to learn more.

A different area. How about dealing with wind shear? Do they use the ventilation system to keep equal pressure on the skin?

Something else has to start soon otherwise our building boom is going to come to a crashing halt.

^^^Well I think the new PUC building on Golden Gate is a pretty sure bet for the spring. It's not that tall, but it's very green. And of course the second ORH tower is a lock, probably for next month (or it might slip to February but sometime in late winter).

You guys bring up an interesting discussion, which I've added to in the SF Rundown thread, so I don't take this one off topic.
