  1. I was just informed by someone who was bidding some construction scopes of work to Turner Construction for this that the project has suddenly been placed on hold. What an odd turn of events. "We have been informed by the Owner that the project has been put on hold until further notice."
  2. I spoke with a friend this morning who brought up this property. She said that some existing site utility issues at McAlpine St. were being finalized and that the multifamily development is now moving forward. The building design and total levels is not yet finalized but it will be a mid-rise with surface parking at Level 1 and a concrete podium above with residential levels stacked. This is a Padua property and there are rumblings about Hines, to what extent I am not sure. I asked about Marquette Cos. and received shoulder shrugs. Please consider all of the above the be "water cooler" talk. I do know that this development is moving forward, whether is goes beyond final design and pricing is uncertain. Or perhaps this is all posturing in an effort to push the land sale? This info should make things as clear as mud.

  7. That’s a fine idea and something I wouldn’t mind seeing as well. I would be willing to bet that the mechanical penthouse, along with the level below, get changed for the better. This is the first real round of budgeting and design review, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  11. This is affordable housing (HHA). 50% of the 350 units will be market rate, the rest affordable units. Waiting on building information... Also, last I heard, Lovett was part of this deal as well.
  12. At 800 Commerce St. they are going to demo much of the first floor and convert it to a parking garage. It's going to be a tight fit with the existing twelve columns spaced between each parking spot.
  13. Yes, it is. This new addition to their building is theirs as well. It will connect to 800 Commerce at levels 2 and 3.
