Both of my regular readers will know that, at heart, I’m an engineer. I spend my afternoons walking to nowhere on a treadmill at the Palo Alto JCC. And the last few months have been highly entertaining. The treadmills have a great view of what was once an outdoor parking lot. They closed off the parking lot a few months ago. This is the saga of construction at the Palo Alto JCC.
The plan is to put a roof over the (soon-to-be-former) outdoor parking lot. The roof will feature a soccer field and numerous other areas for various forms of socializing. The video includes artist’s renderings of the finished project. But (of course) what fascinates me is the actual day-to-day activities that go into this construction. I do not claim this is in any way comprehensive — there was a lot of work that occurred before I started shooting video. But you may get a kick out of it.
