    For a structural pile they drop in a cylindrical rebar cage but maybe for shoring it doesn't need it. There's also situations where they put a slurry in the hole as they drill prior to the concrete to keep the hole from caving in...

    So many missing or broken panels. Did they not ship the patio doors, or due to value engineering they've gone with orange tarp? This is going to take forever to complete. They'll be better off changing the marketing to a retirement facility by the time they're ready for tenants.

    Agree, it's odd. It's not two buildings so why ____ & ____. It's also not in Kensington. It's in Hillhurst. I don't ever call Kensington, Kensington Village and I'm there every day. It's certainly not a village. It's two streets.
