Awesome video! Thanks for sharing.

Very cool :sunglasses:
Thank you very much for sharing!

This is unbelievable ! How in the world do they do the top floors ?
How is concrete pumped 300 feet high & then pumped to the floor area
for the 20th to the 22nd floor ?

Imagining how much that one slab of concrete and rebar weighs gives me incredible appreciation of towers and the engineers that design them.


#45

They either lift the concrete up in buckets using the tower crane or they actually pump it up using a contraption that looks like a skinnier tower crane.


#46

Awesome work, Dylan! I am amazed how much flex there is in the tower crane. It really shows up in the time lapse!


#47

Great video, thx you for posting.


#48

I wonder what is considered the first floor on the building? Wilmington Street or Fayetteville level.


#49

My guess is Fayetteville. I’m thinking the Wilmington side is going to be loading bay, etc and it doesn’t look like it’ll have much sqf.


#50

No retail on Wilmington is a pathetic missed opportunity, no building built in downtown Raleigh shouks not have retail, look at that awful Metropolitan apartment building.


#51

I agree, Raleighwood. Treating Wilmington Street and Salisbury Street as alleys for loading is a disservice.


#52


I think we’re getting another half a floor of concrete today! And they’re already making fast progress on the 3rd floor on top of what they poured last Friday. So fascinating watching this!


#53

Thank you for the post. It would be especially cool if FNB actually had a video-cam, especially for time lapse…:blush:


#54

Couldn’t agree more! There often times is a cam on an adjacent rooftop for that purpose but I’m not aware of one.
