The W Has a Pool!

Our friend Jackie shot these pictures from her perch near the W Hotel and Condo construction as a swimming pool got installed. This is, Jackie believes, the hotel pool and there will be another pool on the east for the condo owners. Jackie on the construction: "They were sculpting the pool from gunite. According to the Internet, the term “gunite” is like “Kleenex” – 'originally a proprietary form of pneumatically projected (sprayed) concrete, it is now used generically. Useful for forming vertical and near-vertical surfaces and free form concrete structures without form-work. Allows concrete to be carved while wet.' It was amazing to see the pool taking shape."

Thanks as always to Jackie. It's great to have contributors with different perspectives!
