I found a few aerial shots of this project, they are from July when they were just starting framing.  It looks like they may be topped out or close to it now.

Wow, that is impressive.  This project seems to be flying under the radar - likely because of Riverside being closed.  I suspect that will change starting next week.

What's the top level of the parking structure?
Is that a pool?

Yep there is a rooftop pool on the west side of the parking structure.  The courtyard will be landscaped with a fountain and there is a plaza area at the corner of Denver & Riverside.

Looks like it will be nice.   

That type of construction just looks so flimsy...Especially for 3 and 4 stories and more.  Just "seeing" piles of 2x's after a big wind...

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Actually they are easily good beyond that with gypcrete decks and full fire suppression.

Yeah.  I have seen it and stayed in lots of hotels built that way.  Works well if you sheath it properly, and most seem to do it well now.  And FEMA shows how to do 2x4 construction to withstand debris from a CAT 5 tornado - I am building some things like that right now!  Wood is good!!

Still 'looks' like those popsicle stick buildings from 3rd grade art class...

CAT5 tornado?

Tornadoes are rated EF, Hurricane's are CAT with a fairly significant difference in wind speed. EF5 = 200MPH+. CAT5 = 157MPH+.

Most wooden structures can't withstand an EF5 tornado whereas they can survive a CAT5 hurricane.

EF.    What they say is that an EF5 with winds over 200 mph can push a 2x4x8' at 100 mph.  That is the wall rating of their safe room, using their construction methods.

Cliff's notes version - anchor the wall studs well into good concrete.  Sheath the room with 3/4" plywood and layer of 12 ga steel sheet.  Max 14' x 14' for residential. Will keep you from getting the 2x4 debris into room with enough force to kill you.   Tractor/trailer truck landing on you - not so much.  Direct hit from 200 mph winds, the room is probably gonna blow off the slab. 

To survive that, probably need about 1/4" steel plate anchored well.   Or thick concrete pillbox as would get with ICF construction.


Hurricanes - mostly it will be newer construction that can handle the 157+ that was built to code without cheating.   Lots of old buildings still blowing away when get the 'right' 157 if they haven't been retrofitted.

Patric's CAT-5 tornado is spot on!!  But won't eat a house....
