W and Element Hotel Philadelphia – Foundation Pour Time-lapse Video

The concrete pour for the new W and Element Hotel Philadelphia’s foundation occurred this past July and was one of the largest in the city’s long history. The record-breaking continuous mat foundation pour lasted 24 hours and required 600 concrete trucks. The 51-story, 773,500 SF cast-in-place concrete structure will support 755 guest rooms under the banners of two distinctive and unique hotel brands, ground-level retail, numerous amenities, event and restaurant spaces, as well as below-grade parking for up to 171 vehicles.

Congratulations to our project team partners: Chestlen Development, Vine Street Matthews Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Cope Linder Associates, Tutor Perini, and Thomas P. Carney.
