I never realized how tacky and outdated that pool deck was. Sorry, not to offend anyone if it has architectural significance.

The overhead canopy marketing signs are now installed. They look really good. The garage is 3/4 of the way down. Seem to be moving along nicely on the one.

The vertical shear elements on the south and north sides have been adjusted a bit too. They now step in as the building rises until they pretty much disappear at the top. I believe this change was hinted a week or two ago.

Mobilization should be the week of 3/27. They still have to remove the existing foundations and stabilize the site with brick bat for the next couple weeks before the rigs arrive.

You never know - sort of like writing "the OTHER knee" on one leg before surgery.

So I'll ask again. Is the old parking garage facing Wabash somehow part of this development? It it going to be rehabbed, left as-is, demolished? This shows 84 parking spaces which seems like a small amount for a 479 unit building. I don't care if there are zeros spaces btw, just want to know what the plan is for that ugly garage on Wabash.

^The garage on the corner of Wabash and 8th is not part of the Essex project. It is on a different parcel and owned by a different owner. They just did some work inside the garage, not sure what they did.
