CENTRAL CONDOMINIUM : INSIDE THE COURTYARD

Modern Ottawa Central 1 Condominiums courtyard construction As some of you already know, the amenities at Central 1 include an interior courtyard. This feature essentially allows everyone living in the condo to have a shared backyard in the city. While the priority is to complete the units, work is also being done in the courtyard. I've been taking pictures of the courtyard as subtle changes occurred, documenting the process. Last week all the original construction material was gone and some workers were preparing the ground. I have enough pictures to show you a bit of the evolution of the courtyard so far.

There was even a little "office" (blue box on the right). The big red structure on the right is for the crane used to lift items. It's really high.

You can see the  concrete slab underneath.

I'm looking forward to see how this looks later on. Also given the fact that the building is so close to the neighboring house, some of the workers were also repairing the roof of the house next door, which was much needed.
