Feb 9, 2017 Update

Continuing the week of February 13th, Oceanwide Center will be completing the final test shafts for its foundation which will require some additional night work. Unfortunately, there is no way around scheduling this work at night as our tests require that rebar and concrete be set immediately after these test shafts are drilled down to bedrock. We will do our best to limit impacts, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Additional crane equipment will be mobilized as the buildings along First Street continue to be demolished. Jessie Street between Ecker and First Street will be closed daily from 7am-5pm to ensure everyone’s safety during demolition. Utility work and pedestrian safety improvements will continue on the portion of Ecker between Mission and Jessie for the next several weeks, and additional sewer upgrade work will continue along First Street in the evenings.

Starting in March, Jessie Street between Ecker and First Street will be closed permanently. During construction, vehicular traffic will be temporarily rerouted from Jessie St south on to Ecker (between Jessie and Mission only). This reroute will remain in this condition until the project is near completion and this portion of Ecker is converted back into a pedestrian walkway. At no time during the project will vehicular traffic pass on the portion of Ecker between Stevenson and Jessie and that will remain for pedestrian access only.

If you have questions, please contact Patrick Otellini from Swinerton Webcor at potellini@swinertonwebcor.com or 415-847-1174.

The project also has a 24-hour construction hotline 415-746-9948 if you have any concerns.

Jan 13, 2017 Update

Beginning this weekend, Oceanwide or its authorized contractors will begin work on the southern portion of Ecker street between Mission and Jessie. This work includes planned pedestrian improvements and safety upgrades. Jessie street will continue to be closed during construction hours for the next 4-6 weeks.

Beginning January 16th and continuing for a period of three weeks, drilled pile work will be performed 24 hours a day. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by night work.  Unfortunately, there is no way around this as our tests require that rebar and concrete be set immediately after these test shafts are drilled down to bedrock. We will do our best to limit impacts.

Jan 3, 2017 Update

Beginning the week of December 26th, Oceanwide will continue to demolish buildings along First Street. This work will require large equipment to be moved on and off the site. We will continue to be mindful of our neighbors as we finish this phase of the project. Also beginning the week of December 26th and continuing through the week of January 9th, our foundation contractor will start mobilizing equipment for the start of practice and test piles. During these next few weeks you will notice a lot of large equipment being brought in and assembled in the 526 Mission St. site. This is in preparation for drilling the first 6.5’ diameter (test) piles, which are scheduled to start on January 13th. Although there is very large equipment in a very small site, be reassured all work will be kept inside the site and never allowed beyond the construction fence.

Temporary improvements to this portion of Ecker will be underway to make sure that both pedestrians and automobile traffic can share this segment of Ecker in a safe and responsible way. We will also have people guiding traffic and pedestrians during construction hours.
