Back to the Future 2

Here is a portion of the building seen yesterday looking very different, as a point of reference you can still see a couple of arched windows in the bottom left. Known as the West Offices the building will eventually house York City Council customer centre and also provide office accommodation.

The highest point in the construction was reached on Nov 17th and to celebrate the occasion a traditional 'Topping Out' ceremony took place. Symbolic elements of wine, oil, corn, salt and a Yew branch were added to a brick mould in a tradition dating back some 500 years to ensure the prosperity and success of the development. The mould will then be used in the new building.
