Not sure if this is still the best thread, but it appears some prep work is going on for RM West Phase II

Probably exploration boring for foundation engineering. Don't see any of the other equipment or materials one would expect if they were ready to pour.

There's what looks like a survey stake visible even from this far away, so it's probably been surveyed and this is prep for foundation work, like where the main support columns will go.

Should be starting soon. They'll close the sidewalk on 5th Street, so the pedestrian accommodation will just be on 4th.

So the ordinance to keep both sides open....that's only if the developer wants to deal with it I guess? How lovely.

Looks like a crane or something very large is on the construction site of River Market West II.

I am no engineer but it appears it is being used for drilling of some sort.

There are a few renderings of RM West II on NSPJ's website. Don't recall seeing these...
