Ash Skyline Plaza

Sunshine and Skyline


Skyline

With spring just days away, we know flowers will be popping up any time now. Until then, we can watch the Ash Skyline Plaza continue to sprout downtown. Here's some new pictures to help with your spring (or Skyline) fever!

By the Numbers


Skyline

As financial services professionals, we obviously have a thing for numbers. These figures from our friends at Weigand Construction are no exception! 

Information from underground (utilities installed along Webster Street):

  • 335 = linear feet of storm sewer
  • 796 = linear feet of 54-inch combo sanitary sewer
  • 114 = linear feet of sanitary sewer

Data from down in the dirt:

  • 5,300 = loads of dirt from inside retention walls, not including utility spoils
  • 58,000 = total number of cubic yards those loads equaled
  • 29 = trucks at the site on Sept. 12 
  • 300 = loads they hauled in one day 

More fun and figures: 

  • The south shear tower pile cap was poured in December 2014. This single pile cap, which supports the south stair elevators and the tower crane, consists of:
    • More than 400 cubic yards of concrete
    • 135 25-foot deep auger cast piles
    • Between 60 and 70 tons of reinforcing steel
  • 1,025 auger cast piles support the Skyline structure and total nearly 4.7 miles in length
  • 1,300 pre-fabricated precast concrete structural beams, columns and deck sections are being fabricated
  • The largest single beam weighs 83,000 pounds

Building to build


Skyline

Our friend Larry Weigand of Weigand Construction sent us this photo of a 275-ton crane being built for use at the Ash Skyline Plaza site. In the next couple of days, the pre-cast concrete will start to build the parking garage, and we'll see the structure take form over the next few weeks. 

 

The snow doesn't bother them anyway


Skyline

Things are progressing well with the schedule for the Ash Skyline Plaza. Right now, you can see the project coming out of the ground (and popping up through the snow) as the elevator and stairway shafts are constructed. This is the next phase before the pre-cast concrete shows up for the parking garage – that's expected to start in March.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Construction


Skyline

The Ash Skyline Plaza is moving on to the out-of-the-ground phase of construction! Footers are poured, more than 1,300 core pilings have been drilled, and now footers/walls for the underground parking garage are being poured. The parking garage is the base of the structure, so as it takes shape, we should start seeing some significant progress coming out of the ground over the next two to three months.
