2 months from mat pour to street level is pretty darn quick.

 

With Hines moving there global headquarters and already having tenants signed they have a pretty rigid deadline to meet.

Especially when you think about how long the excavation process seemed to take.

 

 

I was just thinking the same thing. Almost a year of looking out the window at the excavation and they're prepping the 2nd story. It's going up fast.

Saw a crew jumping the shorter crane, they said they would jump it 4 sections. 2 are in the hole and 2 on the street.

 

 

Forgive my ignorance: how does this work? I saw the work today and couldn't piece together what was happening and how.

The speed of this project is kind of insane when compared to other office buildings/apartments that are going up. Every other set of pictures is either depicting a new floor or the support pillar going make its way above the new floor.

 

If they have the same timeline for the Preston...Hine might want to take some contracts in China to see if they can give them a run for their money.¬†ūüėā

Are they building the parking garage above this portion? It looks like there's a ramp in the second to last picture

 

Usually these towers will have the two underground floors as parking, the ground floor as lobbies and retail then the next 10 or so floors as parking and then all office above that.

I believe this building will have several floors of above ground parking below the office floors.

Great comparison and well done. I cant wait to see all of the corners, setbacks, angles and reflections off of this building. It's going to be really fun watching this one go up!

I think I mentioned in the ‚ÄúAllen‚ÄĚ thread that it‚Äôs really going to be something to see Texas Tower, Preston and the Allen all rising together with all those cranes at the same time. I suspect that all three buildings will be of substantial height, with exposed columns 30+ floors up at the same time. Oh the crane porn that is to come...
