This month, caulking of the precast panel joints on the west side of the spherical building will be completed. Concrete for the building’s projection box and screen box slabs has been poured, and embeds for an antenna mast will be installed in the projection box walls.

Installation of the Saban Building’s escalator system is now complete. Structural steel for the air handler and cooling tower is being erected on the building’s roof, and installation of the limestone anchors of the south façade is being completed.

Simultaneous to the Academy Museum’s construction, Metro continues work on the forthcoming Purple Line Extension.

Purple Line Section 1 Construction Updates

Wilshire/Western Station Eases Into Spotlight

It was inevitable that the new Purple Line stations under construction would gather the bulk of attention; after all, Wilshire/La Cienega, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Brea have never had a subway station. But now the spotlight illuminates the veteran station at Wilshire/Western, which has been serving riders since 1993.

Shoring sewer trench on Wilshire Bl east of Manhattan Pl

Beginning in September 2017, with the relocation of a sewer in the eastbound lanes of Wilshire Bl, the design-builder began the steps necessary to connect the Purple Line terminus to the future twin tunnels.

The next phase of construction began Friday, October 27 as the design-builder started the first of an anticipated 14 full weekend closures for Wilshire Bl, between Manhattan Pl and Western Av. These weekend closures are necessary to complete piling and jet grouting, and they save time compared to a series of weekday-only closures.

Wilshire/Western Connection Weekend Detour

Fortunately for Purple Line passengers, the Wilshire/Western station will remain open for operation during construction of this connector.

Wilshire/La Cienega Hits Phase 3

Decking of the Wilshire/La Cienega intersection is now complete! The design-build contractor, STS, will be moving onto Phase 3 this weekend. Phase 3 will consist of decking on Wilshire Bl between La Cienega Bl and San Vicente Bl in Beverly Hills and will take place over 11 full weekend closures of Wilshire Bl.

Lowering whaler to support concrete decks

During the month of November, decking will only take place over the weekends of November 3-6 and November 17-20, taking a break for Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving weekends.

Jet grouting, a construction process to stabilize soils, will also continue on the east end of the weekend decking closure this month.

For more information about the Purple Line Extension construction activities in Beverly Hills for the Wilshire/La Cienega and Wilshire/Rodeo stations, we invite you to attend the monthly update meeting on Wednesday, November 8th at 6:30pm at Beverly Hills City Hall in the Municipal Gallery on the 2nd floor.

This month, the shell of our spherical structure continues to take shape as installation of pre-cast concrete panels progresses. Installation of the dome glazing embeds, on the east and west side of the structure will continue, as well as rebar installation for the screen box slab.

In the interiors of the Saban Building, we will begin fireproofing the structural steel and concrete will be poured for column and beam encasements, as well as for slab repairs on the first and fourth floors of building. Please note that, occasionally, there will be construction activity on the weekends through the month.
