^Agree, both in time to start construction from funding completed/approved as well as actual construction period. It's usually moreso with local developers so surprising this slow with a Chicago developer. I think from Chicago...

I was impressed when I walked by this weekend? Maybe I'm just trained now.

It’s taken them well over a month just to put the metal decking down on the small phase 1 steel structure. They haven’t even completed the decking install nor poured concrete. We are unfortunately used to the slow progress.

I'm quite sure they ran into subsurface issues. All of these projects do. You just do not know what someone buried before anyone cared or we had an EPA/DNR that regulated stuff.

A save & restoration of a terra cotta facade. While not an especially notable one, at least a save.

It's actually on the National Register (with the Rieger and Monroe), so notable enough for that.

None of those compare to the terra cottas Cordish demolished. The deco ones on the west side of the 1300 block of Main(Soakies) and the SE corner of 14th and Baltimore.

I love the fact that in the latest photo you can see four developments from the last 5 (or fewer) years.

In order of appearance?

1. 1914 Main
2. Home2Suites
3. Arterra
4. CityClub

Don't forget the Pershing building peeking out there!

That seems older to me, but guess it's not.

site is providing design services for three parts of the site: the ground floor, second-floor courtyard, and sixth-floor pool deck.

Image
The ground floor features lushly landscaped walk-up units and private yards that exceed City requirements. The second-floor courtyard includes a demonstration kitchen, living and dining spaces, yoga deck, a zen garden, lounge lawn, sun deck, and multiple fire pits. The sixth-floor pool deck features a Moroccan tiled hot tub and pool with turtle spray jets, covered bar, and media wall with fireplace.

It looks like a base for a crane has been started in the middle of the site.
