John McDonogh School No. 11, built in 1879 and saved from the wrecking ball at the future University Medical Center site, was moved for the third time in a "freakish engineering feat." The 16,000-square foot, 17-ton structure is mostly likely in its permanent location now and Orleans Shoring GM said (in the understatement of the year), "I'd say it's a good feeling to get it done and behind us."
