Remember when I said "concrete is imminent"? Well, I neglected to say how imminent because I didn't know. Then I got an email from Tim last night, telling me that concrete would be pouring at 9 am today. "Daniel and I have been really killing it this week keeping the progress rolling at the Ritz," he wrote, and he wasn't kidding. When I was there on Tuesday they hadn't even put rebar down anywhere in Theater 1. When I walk in two days later, everything is covered in concrete and there are guys crawling over the wet cement, troweling away.
This is a big day for the Ritz. With concrete done, the rest of the major structural work can be finished. And Daniel tells me that they can start working on the cement as early as tomorrow.
