    Are you building a wall now across Washington at Cedar?

    looks like they started to break the slurry wall connecting the VSC and 130 Liberty

    The red lines are the location of the Secants and the green is the Jet Grout curtain. You can see how it matches up with the existing slurry walls and will form a watertight bathtub (complete in about 10 days). And above, yes the wall has started to come down. The PC800 wasn't working well and we are doing better with 345 and 12000lb hammer.
    The pond as you can see is now a mud filled slop pile after taking the spoils from the Jet Grout operation for 2 months.

    So the foundation for the mythical tower 5 would be behind (south) of the green line, then?

    Yes, tower 5 will line up with the Cedar St streetwall. That's why the proposed then cancelled Morgan-Chase building had the beer belly.


    Thank you, Mr Irish.

    FYI, the archeologists are back onsite too. We're only a few feet above the supposed "other half" of the boat.

    Irish, any idea what they're expecting to find and why they expect to find the other half there?

    Oh, I had a feeling that you guys would find the other half of the boat. But if it stretches from here to 1 Liberty, then they're out of luck.

    Apparently the demising wall the we are now demolishing was constructed straight down through the boat, so what they found while excavating in Phase 1 was only a part of it, they figure we'll see more once we dig down on the other side of the wall.
