July 14, 2017 Update

Continuing until late fall, Oceanwide’s contractors will be installing foundation piles for the Mission Street Tower. 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 do our best to limit impacts, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

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 begin in August during daytime work hours. Residents will be further notified in advance of the operation.

Partial demolition of building 78 will continue during the hours of 7:00 am – 5:00 pm. The demolition is now on the 2nd floor. We anticipate that the demolition will be completed by the end of August.
