Pretty sure it was, like the project this thread is about, delayed due to archeological digs.

I thought that wrapped up weeks ago? Are there now issues with neighbors due to the dig?

Judging by the webcam in the link below, this one is officially UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Rebar is on site and foundation work has started :cheers:

Happy to see this one! It should really add a lot of life to that part of Spring Garden.

Is this the one that's going to have the Amazon grocery store?

There was speculation in the beginning of this thread about this building possibly being designed so that the single story portion could support a second tower in the future. Are there any signs of that happening in the work that has already occurred?

The foundations on the near side of the site seem very different than the far side which is leading me to believe this wasn't in the plans, but I admittedly know very little about large scale construction.

Tower Crane coming...
 
Tower crane base was set yesterday...tower to be erected weekend of Jan 22-23, weather permitting.

I'm sure this is known, but it's quite amazing to look at this area in person or on Pictometry (a cooler Google Maps). The entire area from Spring Garden to Fairmount, 4th to 6th has transformed in the past 15 years. And not all, but many of the new structures are good looking buildings.

And that area doesn't include the the future large development from Spring Garden to Fairmount, 6th to 7th (current Fairmount Manor site).

I remember traveling in this area pre-2010 to visit friends in Fishtown and it's truly night and day (in a good way). Great to see all the gaps between Old City and Northern Liberties disappearing, doesn't seem far off when we will have a seamless transition between the two areas, minus the dumb highways.

If only there were more street trees with these buildings, some include them, but most don't. :)

And the street trees we have need more respect and TLC!

What we really, really need is for the Spring Garden greenway project to finally happen. That way we can get street trees, median trees, protected bike lanes, and traffic patterns that make sense!

Not enough studies have been completed, we need at least 10 more to make this work. (sarcasm :D).

The tower crane is up on this one, you can see it from Independence Mall over the Constitution Center.
