Natural Resources Building @ 8th & P Streets

Piles are being drilled into the ground at the P Street Natural Resources Building. It’s impressive to visit the work site, the entire block is in use for either preparation or construction of the tower. While there taking the photos, I spoke to someone working on the project asking where tower crane or cranes were going to be placed. The answer surprised me, I was told no tower cranes would be used to build this tower, but one giant mobile crane because the proposed tower was not designed to built with a tower crane. Strange to hear, but that’s how it was explained to me.

The OxBlue cameras are currently the best was to view the towers progress, but I snapped a few photos anyway.

Not using a tower crane doesn't make sense building a high rise that will be taller than some of it's neighboring buildings. That person is probably mistaken.
