South Branch progress!

The work at South Branch has been mostly underground for some time now - compacting the soil beneath the building, putting in some of the ductwork that will go below the foundation - but things are starting to happen at the surface.  Take a look!

Though things may appear quiet, this in fact an active construction site, and access is limited.  Standing on the Russell Street sidewalk and looking in where the entrance will be.  The orange line near the bottom of the picture shows us wherethe front of the building will be.  
Looking East toward the Thai Temple, you can see the building will run the length of the site.  Those concrete pieces will go in to the ground to provide drainage.
