They're still excavating the site.

Would love to have posted a pic, but I just landed in Hong Kong enroute to Jakarta and Bandung. I'll post pics of the 53rd Street project when I return home.

I will say I'm so glad the Dunkin Donut/University of Chicago police station was torn down. The hotel will be a vast improvement from a pedestrian and urban texture standpoint.

It seems like they are still waiting on the foundation permit.

I was curious what Hyde Park's oldest building is. I came across the database listing all the pre-1940s building in Chicago, including Hyde Park:

https://webapps.cityofchicago.org/la...earch/home.htm

(Choose Hyde Park for the neighborhood.)

As you may know, the oldest house in Hyde Park is 5317 S. Dorchester. (I guess that's also the oldest building in HP?) :
