I know developers cant touch it but, can the they do anything or pay the city to clean up and develop, more trees and bushes on the green area along the side of the expressway ramp? I know the podium is high enough that tenants probably wont see it but that area just looks beat up. I'm sure that is probably at the bottom of the priority list for the city so thats why I ask.

Trees and brush along the expressway tend to trap flying debris and garbage during the winter, unfortunately. In my time living in the area, I can tell you that a handful of homeless folks tend to hole up around in there and may leave their trash behind. Take a walk about the Circle and over by Roosevelt & Des Plaines and you'll see what I mean. May not be as prevalent now due to the reconstruction of the interchange, but still...

I'm sure that it will at least be cleaned up by the City in the spring. Of course, that greenery might be torn out anyway, so we shall see.

Drills spinning...

I guess I was wrong about this getting started soon.

I also thought Wolf Point West would be the next start.

In this case, I don't mind being wrong.

I just hope I remember to eat meals and take showers, go to work, sleep, stuff like that, instead of staring out the window. I still have 625 West Adams right behind me, too.

It's alive....It's Alive!!!!!. How long does parking lot demo usually take? Longer with electric running underneath im sure. But didn't mich/roosevelt only take about week or little more. Fingers crossed drills drop by the end of the month.

It all depends on what's below the surface. We have a loan now so no need to have your fingers crossed, it's happening.

In yesterday's article in Crain's about the developers landing their loan from Bank of the Ozarks, Fifield's role was discussed - they actually have no equity in the development, and to me it sounds as if they are developing the project for a fee from the actual owners, who presumably may not have been able to pull this project off as developer themselves.....
