South Slope Excavation Continues
The foundation wall directly below 1504 8th Avenue. You can see the bracing in place on the building's side wall. Interestingly, there has been no bracing on the rear facade which has quite a bit of masonry cracking between windows. For a sense of scale you can use the wood construction fence. Each sheet of plywood is 4' x 8' in size.
Rear lot line wall. The SE corner directly behind the Memorial Baptist Church.
Looks like they have reached the bottom. Looking at the SW corner directly below 389 16th Street. Despite being relatively dry these past weeks, water has been seeping through the foundation piles forming a pool. This week, however, rain has been predicted for Thursday through Sunday. Expect more sink holes and cracking to follow.
