"They held up well," says Tony Fortunato, who runs the project for Engineered Soil Repairs. "We have most of the flashing in under the cliff, now, but not the finishing coat." He expects to begin similar work beneath 320 Esplanade in the near future. "They're at the point where the other apartments were when they needed work."
Further up the coast, the owners of Lands End are close to receiving a permit from the California Coastal Commission that would allow work beneath their crumbling cliffs, as well.
Conditions are so relatively stable that Fortunato took today off, a rarity for him in the past two months. "I'll be back at it tomorrow," he said.
