Filed under "if anybody cares". Any story about the Manchesters seems to be either a diatribe or a loving fluff piece. This one falls into the latter category.

Wouldn't it be nice if it did revert back to a 50 story structure.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the article mentioned it will be a 1.3 million-square-foot building. Would that make it the largest square footage for a building in DT? (Not including the convention center)

Now with the sidewalk closed on the north side this part C. Chavez is effectively a no pass through zone. There is a sidewalk on the south side but I don't think you are supposed to use it as evidenced by the signs at Red River & C. Chavez.

Will do something on either side to remedy this?

Site prep progress. A hole in the ground, filled with water.

If you got a picture of the area just upstream on the downtown side, could you post that also. That is a very cool picture.

Anyone on SSP have a helicopter? It'd be great to get regular updates from that vantage point of downtown.
