After delay, 311 West Huron begins caisson work

Filling a caisson at 311 West Huron

The recent concrete strike claimed 311 West Huron as a victim. But only temporarily. And with that in the past, caissons are underway, and underground.

311 West Huron is a joint venture between North Wells Capital and Urban Innovations. The 15-story building, designed by NORR, will include about 145,000 rentable square feet and have 130 indoor parking spaces.

The team out here how consists of General Contractor Arco/Murray and concrete contractor Adjustable Concrete Construction, with Stalworth Underground drilling caissons.

The full permit for 311 was issued on 6/27/2022, with the tower crane permit following on 7/20/2022.
