TESTA’S

Palm Beach Daily News - - TODAY -

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.
