I walked by today and there was a lot more machinery on site and they are basically dug out. I bet a crane goes up for this real sooN!

Excavation looked nearly complete tonight; just a little bit of dirt to remove on the north side. Crane should be up in a week or two.

^Great! I've heard some criticism of the architecture, but I think this will be a handsome building and look forward to it getting built.

The deep hole from July 21:



With ORH in background:



The last corner needing excavation. There is already machinery down at the base of the hole, which is too deep to see the bottom of.

Damn, beat me to it! Just looked out the window and saw that. Looks like it will be a Luffing (it will have to be).

Yes - this is a picture on Curbed from almost a week ago that indicates foundation work has commenced over about half of the site. Also, the project sponsor is Equity Residential (NYSE: EQR). Doesn't get any more secure than that All things considered, they made it after many years through SF's rigorous planning process, they hired an expensive architect (Glenn Rescalvo at Handel), demo'd multiple buildings, dug a hole deeper than you would find in nearly any other city, and now are paying close to $1,000/day for that crane.

http://sf.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...nanza.php#more

EQR broke ground on a separate $224M, 453 unit project elsewhere in SF at the same time, both projects of which were discussed on their 1Q14 earnings call. They are long on the market, which is considered the best or perhaps the 2nd best multifamily market in the country right now.

^Deep and difficult to get near. I basically held this above a fence and hoped it would show something:



You can definitely see rebar down there.

Since all the big construction cranes I see in SF are yellow, why is this one white? Different company?
