Nope. As I recall, that went to Columbia College as part of their purchase of the Johnson Publishing Building, and then I think I heard they had sold it to someone else. Possibly East-West University, which I think maybe has an ownership position in the Loftrium next door.

Someone cue the bananas... caisson mobilization will take place this week with drilling occurring next week.

Bombardier Apr 7, 2017 9:21 PM

Drilling caissons will begin on Monday if someone would like to stop by and take a some photos.

I passed the site on the bus this morning. Caisson drill is there and set up; it looks like it was active, but in that short time window I didn't see any spinning motion so I can't say for sure.

Are they allowed to park concrete trucks on michigan? This is a tight site with a small alley. It will be fun to see how they coordinate everything going on at once.

Bombardier Apr 13, 2017 11:49 AM

Concrete operations will be on 8th street for the structure. Major deliveries and skip hoist will be on Michigan.

Freefall Apr 19, 2017 9:09 PM

A few pics of the site today, from my room at Essex on the 8th floor :) Sorry for the glare
