Here is a quick look at the Greenbridge condominium project being built in downtown Chapel Hill's West End. As I write this, workers 200 feet in the air are attaching the jib, or swinging arm, of the first of two cranes that will be used on the project.
Tower crane: 189 feet
Height of taller of two future condominium towers: 128 feet (10 stories plus rooftop mechanicals)
Number of concrete columns to hold up building: 120
Number of dump trucks it will take to excavate dirt: 5,500 to 6,000
Percent excavated to date: 80 percent
Number of condo units: 98 (15 affordable)
Market price: $300,000s to over $1 million
Look for a short construction update coming in Sunday's Chapel Hill News.
