Construction on part of West Hollywood's 25th anniversary Capital Project is coming to a close with a "Topping Out Ceremony" on March 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the WeHo Park Auditorium. According to a press release from the city, "A topping out ceremony is a tradition within the construction industry that marks a milestone when the last beam is placed at the top of the building. Before being positioned, the last steel beam is signed by dignitaries then hoisted into place." The $64 million phase one of the capital project created a new, environmentally-friendly 44,000 square foot library (pictured) with public meeting rooms and a coffee bar, and added two parking garage with 400 spots. The plan also placed tennis courts and a pool on top of the library and garage in an effort to add 2.5 acres of green space to West Hollywood park, located around San Vicente and Santa Monica Blvd. The city is also reworking Plummer Park from top to bottom.
