There are significant portions of the property that have yet to be touched. For instance, the SE corner of the upper lot, at Broad and Elliott, is still in the semi-demolished state of it's former life. There is still some parking at the west side of the lot. It will soon be history, too.
Up at the NW corner of the upper lot the grade has risen quite a bit, well above sidewalk level. Countless truck loads (who's counting?) are required to accomplish this, and the drivers make sure every bit of dirt is left behind. Before leaving the lot, they routinely check the trailer hinge and brush off any remaining soil.
Towards the end of last week, on the lower lot, workers spread out two huge sheets of plastic. By the end of the day, it was covered by 15 or so truck loads of dirt. No clue as to why they want to keep the dirt off the dirt. Probably so it won't get soiled. Just a guess. It's still sitting there, clean as can be.
