Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Are they able to keep pouring floors in the extreme cold temperatures we are currently experiencing? If not there won't be much, if any, visible progress on many of these projects over the next couple of weeks.

Anyone have any idea when we should expect it to break through the plateau?

I really love the quality and color mix that 1 and 30 Dalton are creating for this part of Back Bay that so desperately needs it. One day we'll have a drone shot in the summer with the reflection of the CS Park Pool showing the amazing quality of the new buildings, including Parcel 15.

July-September 2017 Progress report

The H4/H5 podium elevators are shaft ready and the core elevators have railings installed up to level 8 and the pits are completed. The exterior hoist is now running up to level 16. The pool has been installed on level 7, but, unfortunately, not quite ready to take a dip in yet!

The level 5 mechanical room has all major equipment installed and is continuing to be built out. Summer is unfortunately gone and SCCI is currently prepping for winter by providing temporary heat on the floors so work can continue.

The next 3 months include the following activities:
Concrete Structure Level 26-37 and top of belt truss steel system
Hoist access Up to Level 30
Curtainwall Up to Level 25
Storefront Framing Level 1
Core Elevators Pits complete, railings installed to Level 18
H4/H5 Podium Elevators Railings to Level 08
Rough in In Progress up to Level 21 (Hotel)
Drywall/Finishes In Progress up to Level 16 (Hotel)
B2 NSTAR Room Energization
MEP Equipment Start-up, and Testing on Level 5
Temp Heat for Winter 2017 Complete
Well, the cladding is set pretty well for the temporary heat ....but, if they were expecting to jump from 20 to 37 by year's end, then, they're a good 8-10 weeks behind, added to months of lackluster progress ... Yet, at some point; perhaps not too much after the fridgid weather eases the long awaited moment will finally be upon us....

^What. I thought the half page posts disappeared after Whigh left. At least Whigh had some interesting posts (although he swayed way off topic).

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Came in on the pike today for the first time in about a week and noticed theres some type of core sticking up above the plateau. Haven't seen a core yet above the poured floors, but there looks to be one now, and it has finally broken the plateau.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Will the extreme cold impact concrete pours on this thing?

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

Work has to be halted on this. You *can* pour it in normal freezing-point temps with precautions, but it takes a hell of a lot longer to cure. Pouring near 0 is just insanity. The concrete would take an enormous amount of time to cure and even could freeze quite quickly.

I'm gonna try asking Fenagh Engineering on social media and see if I get a more definitive response.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

my friend who's working on this has confirmed that, yes, for the time being most work has stopped. he's an iron-worker, so they were/are able to do most of their stuff, but it's at a point where it's just too cold for any measurable progress.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

I have confirmation from Fenagh Engineering that concrete work has been halted since last Wednesday due to the extreme low temperatures.

Probably just topping slabs inside the heated spaces.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

It would appear that work has resumed. Forms have been raised and the crane was operating as of this morning.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

thanks once again for great pix, beeline.

three more floors and it starts getting interesting.

also, it's been said before, but this is the slowest moving, actively in-progress development i've ever witnessed.

Looking really good. So the condo floors start after the floor with no window cut-outs, right?
