i dunno which one was in the gutter since it was live i only got 10 seconds to really look at it but i was too busy laughing at everyone trying to get it out, prolly the Case not the bob cat.

I don't recall them being up before... was there like a fence before that? Thanks in advance Marvin.
If you are refering to the wall that can be seen from the inside, those if I am not mistaken were concrete that was poured over about two weeks and finished about 2 weeks ago. From the picture above, the wall inside the green one. The picture with the big cranes.

So does anybody have a guess as to what they are actually working on right now?

Yep, thanks... Marvin cleared it up. He said the wall only goes sidewalk high on the parking garage side (I believe it's called Tasman). It almost looked like with the cams it was a wall built to obstruct view/keep people out. And then there is a fence above the wall.

Here is a question for anyone like Sonoco who knows construction:

Will these same guys that are doing the outside be working the inside or do they have different guys for each aspect. (outside, inside, landscaping, carpentry, etc) Do these guys move with the company or just hired job by job?

They appear to be days away from erecting structural steel. Concurrent with that it looks like they're trenching and placing more under-slab utility conduits.

Each type of work is controlled by a specialty subcontractor who's responsible for (1) completing their own scope of work and (2) coordinating and cooperating with the other subcontractors. They each have their own trade crews.
i wonder if the san jose earthquakes are gonna play their home games there

they're already planning on building their own "euro-style" (i.e., 3-sided, ~15k seating) stadium right next to SJC airport, which coincidentally should open around the same time as the Niners' stadium (2014)....Quakes have yet to break ground on it though, so don't hold your breath for 2014, but once started it shouldn't take as long to finish...

i'd imagine it'd only make sense for the Niners to lease their new stadium to the Quakes for "big-draw" games (vs LA Galaxy, friendlies with big Euro clubs, playoffs etc) during the NFL offseason to make a few extra $$$ and the Quakes would be foolish to keep using OAC, Stanford Stadium or Candlestick for such events when a brand new 60K+ stadium is just down the road

Looks like theyve set up a third crane and there is some steel laying on the ground next to a trench that wasnt there last time i looked
I love how the camera occasionally pans over and zooms in on something like you're about to see something really interesting happen...

And then you don't.

Yeah, I know I was just showing how far they have come in such a short amount of time. That's what it looked like from 49ers HQ less than 4 months gao.
