Top Of Building Reached On Hospital Construction Site, Marked By Tree And Flag

In case you hadn't noticed, the new building on the Children's Hospital construction site, now has an evergreen tree on the very top and an American flag.

Why are they up there?

It's part of the the topping out tradition, and means the ironworkers have placed the final beam atop the new "Building Hope" structure.

The ironworkers signed the beam and all watched as it was put into place.  The tree and flag were hoisted up with the final beam.
