San Diego, BAYSIDE condos ($795,000 to $12,000,000.each condo, 282 total.)


This photo shows the concrete pour, last weekend, of the south one-half only of the ten-foot-thick RAFT slab, which supports the 35 story tower. This was a 258 truck ballet in which the contractor placed 11,500 yards of concrete in one monolithic pour that got started at five in the morning and finished by three in the afternoon.

258 trucks in 10 hours = 26 trucks per hour = 1 truck every 2 minutes 20 seconds.
