Giant Christopher Columbus Statue

Carrasquillo Associates (CA) and Carrasquillo Engineering Services Group (CESG) played an important role in the colossal Christopher Columbus Statue project located atop a hillside on the northern shores of the Island of Puerto Rico. This project consists of the erection of a statue twice the height of the Statue of Liberty without its pedestal, and so tall that it could interfere with air traffic once erected. The statue is scheduled to be completed by late summer 2015 and was originally crafted by the great Russian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, the creative mind behind many unique sculptures such as Bayonne’s 9/11 Teardrop Memorial which honors those who died in the tragic 9/11 attack.
