Layer by layer, stones have been caged, covered with mesh, and back-filled with soil, resulting in a vertical retaining wall at the NW corner of the upper lot.

The coolest little materials mover on the lot jets around delivering rock with quickness and precision. I'm guessing the wall is approaching 15' in height.

Looking north along Elliott you can see a long section of the wall that steps in as it rises and runs into the vertical face at the north end. A long foundation strip runs south to the end of the lot.

Across the street, a cement footing has been poured along most of the east edge of the lower lot. On the west side of the lot a large support structure is rising up, eventually to a height that will allow the Seattle Cloud Cover bridge to clear the tallest train cars rolling up the tracks.

Back on the upper lot, a cement retaining wall is growing along the eastern edge, and large concrete pads are in place across the SE quadrant of the lot.

More information about the project is available here.

One neighbor's unoffical journal of construction progress made at the Olympic Sculpture Park. As seen over, and through, the fences.
