The municipal government has a retirement pension issue, but it's the developers and businesses doing the building.

Harry-- when did you take those shots of Lake and Forest? I think they started pouring cement for the 15th floor on Monday.

A friend of mine just sent me a shot and they are pouring the floor on fifteen. He lives in the highrise across the street. It's going up pretty fast. At this rate, it'll top out in late Sept. or early Oct.? Just in time for Colt to start prep.

Now if the parking lot for that strip mall could get wrapped with midrises like those along with Division we'd have a pretty decent area going on there.

I found it difficult to get a good picture of this building. No angle really caught my eye.
