October Ground Breaking?

Not sure if it means anything but when asking on their FB page when ground breaking would occur I got this response.


"We are breaking ground this October!"

Next month? That doesn't seem right. Is this even approved/financed yet?

I'd take that with a grain of salt.

It's been approved for a couple of years now. There were a soil testing rig spotted on site earlier this summer, i can imagine prep work starting soon.

Hell yes! While not my favorite proposed skyscraper, I won't say "no" to another 800 footer ESPECIALLY in this area of town.

I'm still disappointed they won't build the original design, and I'm constantly reminded by the thumbnail image above.

Right... I'm happy someone got it in writing at least. If they don't start then, I think we should put the thread into hibernation mode

Unless they mean October 2020 lol

For real. if the reports of slow sales are true, it's certainly hasn't been from a lack of advertising effort.

Go to Page 1 for the latest renderings. I think there are others within the past 10 pages as well.

GC is McHugh. I heard they have a hard requirement of breaking ground this year so are targeting a December ground breaking. I'm unclear on whether this is due to a city requirement or some other hard deadline, but the project team is allegedly working towards a December start.

This does seem to be lie #1000, but does anyone really care if it ends up being December? I had almost counted this one out earlier in the year and now feel so excited that we're getting a unique, 800ft+, skyline-changing tower with perma views of the lake/park. Even if this gets delayed again until 2020, I'm so excited for this one!
