Eastern Tower Community Center “Topping Out” Celebration
On June 21, Hunter Roberts Construction Group along with development team PCDC and JNA Capital, Inc. hosted a topping-out celebration at the Eastern Tower Community Center construction site. This celebration marked the last pour of concrete at the very top of the structure, which will be the tallest building in Chinatown at 20 stories tall and host Chinatown’s very first community center upon completion. PCDC staff and interns celebrated with construction workers and business executives alike with a bountiful lunch buffet, which included pulled pork sandwiches, salads, and a whole siu yuk roasted pig donated by Ting Wong Restaurant and Mrs. Yuen.
The topping-out celebration is a milestone and felt like a culmination of all the hard work PCDC staff and board members have put into the ETCC project. So, understandably, the anticipation and excitement for the opening of ETCC are now greater than ever. Though there is still much work to be done, the end of this long-awaited project is now in sight — quite literally — and Chinatown will soon have the community center it deserves and has deserved for decades.
