The time flies...it has been 2.5 months since I cruised around and checked in on the progress of projects in Sacramento with tower cranes. My timing was great because I found out the next day that I need to quarantine because of COVID-19...
We lost one tower crane (Hyatt Centric Marshall Hotel, 8th and L Street. DavisREED Construction) but gained a new mini tower crane at Mansion Inn (see below). Overall, our count stands at eight. Sacramento is abuzz with construction which is a great sight. The projects below go from west to east starting in West Sacramento.
CalSTRS second tower in West Sacramento, DPR Construction.
Sacramento Commons, 5th and O Streets, Deacon Construction.
601 Capitol Mall; this project is now called The Frederic. Heller Pacific is the owner's rep and JMI is the general contractor (2 tower cranes).
DGS Swing Space, O Street between 10th and 11th Streets. Hensel Phelps Construction (2 tower cranes). This project is far enough along that I expect the cranes to be removed soon.
Mansion Inn, H Street between 15th and 16th Streets. DesCor Builders (mini tower crane...does this count as a full tower crane? Asking for a friend).
Hyatt House, K and 28th Streets in Midtown. Tricorp Construction. This is a cool project. It took a few months of installing falsework before they could remove the horizontal elements of the structure and start excavating the basement. A craft worker for the excavation subcontractor saw me taking this picture and said "This project is very difficult. Avoid the construction industry." If he only knew...
This page is dedicated to the stuff I love and, for no defensible reason, want to share with the world. Enjoy!
