An Odd Structure, Part 2
In response to blogging about The Wall last week, at least one person requested updates, so here is one. Work has begun on the store/office on the left side (above). You can now see a bit of bracing against the wall until the roof is in place, I suspect. In fact, both sides are now braced (see next two photos).
The smarter-than-me Cuppa studied the sign (below) while I was taking this picture (above) and noticed that the shape of the projected roof matches the wall very well — which is a darn good thing, I rather think. It also shows that there will be a series of shops/offices (I suspect mostly the latter). In looking at the pads and the electrical hookups, it appears that there will be about ten places of business in all and that this will be the only firewall. So, perhaps one of the establishments next to the wall requires extra protection because it involves greater risk? Bakery? Restaurant?
