Hodge Hall: Week 59 -- The view from my desk

The walls are up on the Fee Lane side of the Hodge Hall expansion. 

Well, that's impressive.

The installation of the concrete block is all but finished on the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center. Workers left some larger "window" openings on the Fee Lane side to make it easier to load or remove material on the upper floors using the hydraulic lift. But they'll soon match the other window openings.

We saw a little bit of black granite being installed around the bottom of the tower. The masons continue to work on the limestone veneer on the other side of the building. That process is a little slower than installing the concrete block, so it might be a while before we see the limestone on the west side.

Window frames have also been added to the front elevation.

This is the front elevation along 10th Street as seen from the entrance to the Arboretum.
