Oceanwide or its designated contractors will continue prep work for backfilling soil against the basement wall on the east side of One Ecker. The prep work protects the recently installed waterproofing and the structural integrity of the basement wall. Protection and backfilling will continue during daytime work hours for the rest of the month. We had originally anticipated that the backfilling would begin in August, but the expected start date has been moved to late September. One Ecker residents and other impacted neighbors will be further notified before Oceanwide begins backfilling in this area.
Oceanwide’s contractors will continue installing foundation piles for the Mission Street Tower until late fall. This work will require some additional night work. Unfortunately, this is a 24-hour-a-day operation, as the type of foundation that is being installed requires that rebar and concrete be set immediately after these shafts are drilled down to bedrock. We will continue to make every effort to limit the impact of this work, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
Demolition of building 78 is complete.
