of the ground,” Crowell said.
The Frisbie Group is redeveloping the 1.3-acre site into a new restaurant and shops with a luxury condominium atop each of the six two-floor buildings. Work began last August and should be complete in early 2020, Crowell said.
The fourth and final large concrete pour was accomplished Sept. 22 without a hitch, he said. Coastal Construction, the project’s general contractor, handled the pour from the Sunset Avenue side. Workers did the second portion of a transfer slab that will form a parking garage ceiling and carry the weight of buildings above. About 1,300 cubic yards of concrete was poured in the early to mid-morning that Saturday, Crowell said. The material was trucked from West Palm Beach over the Flagler Memorial Bridge.
The first three pours happened in June, July and August, one each month, and included the first part of the transfer slab and a 36-inch-thick foundation that will be the floor of an underground parking garage.
Construction workers finish the final concrete pour at the former Testa’s site on Royal Poinciana Way on Sept. 22.
