    They were 75% done with drilling work in the second week of August, so I don't think it's much longer, at all. They are very close to vertical construction on the block, as in it should start next...

    Looks like the site they were drilling and filling near the center of the pit, today, is the foundation for one of the tower cranes?

    So, what's going on at the southwest corner of the site? I thought maybe a tower crane, but the ones currently filed don't show one on that corner. But this is definitely a new thing being done...

    I feel like some of you don't know how these stations work and didn't read the article. There are barely enough bus stands at the Rose Parks Transit Center as it is; there is certainly not enough...

    No, there has been no definitive word from Bedrock about what the ultimate height will be. It depends on what hotels they are able to land. This isn't being cancelled; you don't build a foundation...

    The low-rise portion has not changed since that rendering, only the tower portion, and I was only talking about the Block, anyway.

    Yeah, the concern over financing is weird. This is one of the few major projects in the country, right now, that could be financed in the middle of the recession by its developer. Gilbert's recent...

  9. Yes, so what we know is that the block portion...

    Yes, so what we know is that the block portion has not been lowered in height. I'm guessing the 225 feet must be to the roof deck, as the original renderings show the building rising 232 feet to the...

    Thanks, all! And a special thanks to cassique for finding that link so the photo can be properly attributed.

    So this would be almost immediately north of where the Fisher crosses the Chrysler. ...

    Help with an old picture

    Which intersection is this at Hastings?

    All I can guess is that we're looking west-southwest. It looks like maybe we're as far south that we're...

    I have no idea who the general contractor is for Monroe Blocks, but if that is the case, then, yes, that would be odd. So the steel is most likely for that project if Turner is building it.

    Seems unlikely to be for One Campus Martius as the structure is supposed to be topped out. It could be for the Hudson's site, but I can't imagine what beams of such short length would be used for on...

    So, I wasn't complaining about the speed of this at all. Quite the contrary. I was remarking that it looks like they are very close to being done with drilling.

    BTW, depending on the mix of...

    I noticed that apart from the auger cast piles they've been drilling for months, that they went back to the much larger caissons in the podium section the other day.

    They really almost kind of...

    How old are you that 1994 was "a few years ago?"

    In any case, MCS will have the ability to site a station on the existing platforms whenever the region gets its transit in order. This was...

    I don't think he believes that or implied any such thing.

    You can't have a timeline for construction without an actual proposal. Nothing has formally been submitted for this one, and nothing will be until Gilbert is done getting Monroe Blocks going.

    This was announced back in November or December. Maybe the office just opened.

    BTW, I was under the impression that the only rentals in this one were the two apartment buildings (The Renato), and...

    Very nice. Anyone in the know know who the glass supplier for this project is? Also, who's the general contractor on this one? Is it Barton Malow like at the Hudson site?

    Are you high? This literally has nothing to do with anything we are discussing. I thought you might just be a troll; now I'm wondering if you're legitimately unwell on top of it.

    BTW, yesterday it looks like we got the best angle of the auger cast piles being drilled, yet:

    Yes, the tower starts first and then the block, and these movements would definitely explain that. The underground portions of the tower are also the most complicated (truck elevator and turntable...
