The Lights Are On!

The last of the cranes on the Encore Boston Harbor site have been taken down, and now the focus of the work has moved inside to the finishes in the rooms and lobby areas.

Greg John, of Encore, said they took down the last of the cranes last week, and it was a signal for work to proceed inside. Cranes have been on site since August 2016, with as many as 16 cranes on site at one time. With the structure topping off early last summer, and the bronze glass curtain now completed, there was no longer any need for cranes on site.
