Oct 27, 2017 Update

The temporary overhead pedestrian safety protection has been installed on the south side of Stevenson. We expect that it will remain there for the next several weeks.

Last week’s update noted that work would begin on the perimeter shoring wall this past Monday. Oceanwide had additional prep work to complete and this work did not begin as planned. The work will begin Monday, October 30. Oceanwide’s contractors will install the perimeter shoring wall on the First Street site immediately east of 1 Ecker. This work will require large steel beams to be delivered to the site for the next several weeks. The San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency (SFMTA) requires that all oversized deliveries occur between midnight and 5:00 am so the beams will be delivered during these hours. Every effort will be made to minimize the impacts to all neighbors during this time.

During the installation of the shoring wall, drilled pile work will continue to be performed 24 hours a day as we complete the installation of the deep foundations on the Mission Street site and transition over to the First Street site in the coming month.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by night work and we will continue to make every effort to mitigate the impact to our neighbors.

Aug 28, 2017 Update

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.
