Captured in Progress
This matt slab, concrete pour started at 11 p.m and continued until 5 a.m. Most noteworthy, the pour took place at night to avoid traffic issues since the builders had to shut down the roads to all through traffic during that time period. As a result, the drone photos captured by Robbins|Reed illustrate the nighttime activities.
The project is within a predominantly pedestrian and bicycle-oriented location. It is off-campus from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Also, the project adds a bicycle lane to the adjacent property and a bus turnout on the main street to improve traffic flow. And, improvements to the intersection take shape by widening the turn lane on the corner.
The ground floor consists of a garage, retail space, bicycle parking, residential lobby and a cyclists lounge. Also, the garage features a parking lift system for the residents. Finally, the apartments consist of 2-bedroom and studio units. It is four stories in height and is designed to comply with the California Green Building Code.
Earth Systems is providing grading and special inspection for this project.
