Today I had an errand to run in Manteca so I again stopped by the construction site of the Chick-fil-A.
See: Manteca Chick-fil-A? and Manteca Chick-fil-A Construction Update
The Coming Soon signs are up on the fence and construction is underway.
Here is the view from my last update, the south end of the lot will be the parking lot and drive through for the Chick-fil-A.
You can see that since that time they have put in sidewalks along the street and built a concrete enclosure. The enclosure is most likely for the trash bins.
The picture is taken from a bit further back from the last time so you can also see where the building will be.
Here is the picture of the layout of the foundation of the building from a month ago.
Here you can see that the pad of the building is about ready to be poured. I am actually surprised that the building was not off the ground yet. Perhaps there were some delays.
I am a bit excited as when it opens this will be the Closest Chick-fil-A to me.
Now to see how long it takes to finish everything and open.
After a short vacation to attend a wedding in Nebraska I was back at work this week.
I made it back to SFO on Tuesday evening, so didn’t get home until late. I then had to get things organized to go to work on Wednesday.
The traffic was not too bad on Wednesday, but on Thursday I got stuck behind a BART train on the way to work. Luckily it didn’t take too long to get around it.
On Thursday afternoon I took a walk to the construction site near our office. They have made a lot of progress, and you can even see some of the interior walls going up.
There is also a lot of work being done on the air handling and sprinkler systems. Soon I won’t be able to see what is going on inside as the exterior walls will be going up soon.
On Friday I went to the park for a picnic with some of my colleagues. Since I work for a German company we called it Oktoberfest in the park. That meant that we had to have sausage.
The group I was with come from diverse cultures and we had a nice mix of side dishes.
I had a good time visiting with colleagues and watching some of them play volleyball and other games.
A nice end to a busy week.
