The Rhythm City Hotel is a seven-story structure comprised of post-tension concrete decks along with concrete columns and shear walls. This structure is built on auger cast piles as the foundation under all slabs on grade and basement structure. McCarthy Improvement was responsible for the structural build-out. The decks were poured in two sections; an east and a west half with a pour strip in the middle.
