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...
