After many months of waiting for vertical action, Block 162 is completely above the street level with work beginning on the third story of the podium. In addition to the progress on the podium, the core is starting to rise above the completed floors.

Over the next couple months, the core will stay pretty even with the podium; however, when the steel floors begin to go up, the core will rise well above the completed floors just like 1144 Fifteenth here.

Below are two additional angles of Block 162 from behind along Welton and California streets. You can now clearly see the ramps going up for the parking deck.

The podium will be the slowest segment of this build as it will be an all-concrete structure. With that said, it might be a little bit until we visit this project again but we will check back in later this summer.
