From those last few photos, looks like this is for a pretty tall tower like maybe the one they were first talking about and then we didn't hear anything about for a long time until recently -  that is, the 54 story tower, yes/no ?

I think this just ended up being a low-rise doctors office, less than 10 stories if I remember correctly. Hate to be the bearer of bad news.

Oh well, I do love to dream LOL!  But, understandable in this major World crisis - pandemic and financial - we are all (hopefully) living through.

I think the storm last afternoon kept them from doing anything. Unloading the sections on Sunday morning, it's going to be 8 sections high for a total height of 180'.

Drove back to check the progress. It's actually 9 sections high, I guess the guy I talked to wasn't counting the first section. They're building the jib sections.

This is a really dumb question, I know. But was this the lot where that bank drive thru was located?

 

Yup. I'm surprised more smaller places to get a bite to eat/drink/chill aren't going to open up around there, now that you got them, the condos, houses, and the Southmore just generally in that area. I personally would not mind a taco truck or three, but hey, what do I know. Tough time, I know, with Covid. Most of our office is back at work, and the food trucks have started coming back already, so just a thought.

The house with the historical marker across the street has had multiple concepts die out in the last couple years.  I’ve thought it could make for a cool L’Colombe D’Oresque project if it were paired with the vacant lot Hines owns next door.

Yes. They acquired it with the Venue Museum District.
