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.
