Hotel Construction Progress:

The exterior skin of the building continues to be installed working its way from bottom to top.  Brick cladding is near completion at the podium levels in addition to window frame install at the ballrooms and meeting spaces.  Exterior steel, framing, and sheeting will continue up the building reaching Level 12 in late August.  Scaffolding to facilitate exterior construction will also be complete in the coming month up to Level 8.  Guestroom window install is complete to Level 6.  Promenade construction is on hold until the early fall.

At the interior of the building, the steel stairs have been installed and are open for use.  The grand stair curb wall is framed as well.  At the roof, the structure for the mechanical screen is complete with a perforated, vertical mesh and LED lighting to follow.  In addition, waterproofing is currently being put down now that all concrete curb work is complete at the roof.  Mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire sprinkler rough-in is complete at the public amenity levels while sound walls are being installed at the ballrooms above the operable partition tracks.  Wall board cover for Levels 4 thru 6 will continue through August as these floors complete all necessary systems infrastructure and the ceilings have been skim coated.  Elevator machines have been delivered and elevator install will commence during the month of August.
