These owners may be looking to just cash out, and we'll instead see building demolition for bigger projects.
...because the guys putting up all the big projects are the only ones who can afford to buy these places in the first place. And if rents continue to rise, even the better class of tenant will have a hard time justifying the rent.

I can't think of any other reason they would be locating utilities underneath a surface parking lot.

This is one of my favorite projects yo. We really need more office development. I'm getting hype for this to begin. Has this passed through the various loopholes that developments need to get through?

No. Nothing has happened yet.

I wouldn't put much stock in that at all. Probably just based on the press release from the developer months ago.

Yeah, SLS is listed as starting in Q4, I wouldn't hold my breath on most of these dates.

Even still, at least we know this is a serious proposal. Hopefully it just doesn't get downsized like several others were.

I agree it's serious, but the devil is in the details- they wont start anything without an anchor tenant. Unfortunately several large blocks of space are coming on the market in the near future which means any of the few tenants looking for a large block will have options, including Aramark's space at 1101 Market.

to me this screams bringing in an out of town tenant based on what's indeed coming online. hopefully they are looking towards growing the pot instead of shuffling some chairs.
