that will form a parking garage ceiling and carry the weight of buildings above.
The remainder of the transfer slab will take shape during a final overnight pour planned for Sept. 15 or Sept. 22, Crowell said. That work will be done from the Sunset Avenue side of the site.
The first two pours happened in June and July, forming a 36-inchthick foundation that will be the floor of an underground parking garage. The first pour involved 3,200 cubic yards of concrete hauled in 320 truck trips, and the second pour was 1,750 cubic yards in 175 trips, Crowell has said.
The Frisbie Group is redeveloping the Testa’s site at 221 Royal Poinciana Way into a new restaurant and retail space with six second-floor luxury condominiums and underground parking. Work began last August and is expected to be complete in early 2020, Crowell said.
Next, workers will construct the shell of the buildings, on the Royal Poinciana side and then on Sunset. That should be done by the end of the year, he said. In 2019, the focus will shift to the finishing work, including flooring and installing elevators, air conditioning, electrical and plumbing.
The fourth major concrete pour for the Testa’s redevelopment project is planned for Sept. 15 or 22.
