It has been a while since we last posted a #sitevisitgodfrey post and wanted to keep you all up on the progress. We have been busy on the property replicating the work completed on the lower floors in the building interior with framing, plumbing, etc… for the guest room floors. We now have all the guest room floors from 5 through 16 being worked on.
As you have noticed if you walked by the hotel that the outer paneling of the building has been going up incredibly fast. We now have windows on the guest room floors and windows on the east and west walls being installed. The building on the North/South sides will have a total of 307 operable windows! The West side of the building facing LaSalle will have windows on the entire side from the ground floor up to 16. We have started the process on floor 5 to enclose the guest room floors first.
A big part of a hotel building project as I have stated is working in phases and now most phases are in full motion. Check out most of the update pictures below and enjoy some unique shots of the building.

These are not your typical windows…
The two man crew uses scaffolding lowered down and a huge 3 suction window holder to position each piece
Floor 5-7 complete, when complete this side of the building will have an amazing look.
ENJOY YOUR MEMORIAL WEEKEND!
