It seems they've been focusing a lot of attention on the roof of this building lately.  This past two weeks they completely stripped off the old membrane from the roof.  Now there are no more trees growing on it!  The crane apparently broke down, too, about a week ago, causing debris to pile up on the roof because they couldn't lower it down, but within a few days they were able to fix it.  They brought in a mobile crane to lift something up and had people working on it.


This week they've taken out a truck-sized section of wall on the mechanical penthouse of the tall building.  Not sure what is going there yet.  Also they've been power washing various brick and stone at the roof level.


There are always lots of people working on it (I count 12 people on the roof as I type this, one of whom is sledgehammering the floor and several others who are jackhammering), so even if it appears to be going slowly, they still are putting effort into it.

aren't they building a rooftop community area for the residents?
