Nah, at some point that just seems too long plus you would have to get the 1% to agree to mass transit passing through their neighborhood and even a romanticized historical trolley is bastard of crime and lower income petulance too repugnant for their golden paved streets.

Here are some update photos from different directions. Interesting how it looks fatter/wider traveling south on Central and slimmer if you are going north from DT. Most of the exterior work is completed now.

I don't know...it's not very sexy or exciting. Then again, this isn't Uptown, it's Knox.

I stare at this all the time while walking my dog and it is definitely blah.

And although I can't believe I'm making this distinction, at least it's not in what I think of as the "good" part of Knox. Thank God the Broadstone, which IS in the best part of Knox, decided to go with underground parking and prioritize activating the street. Meanwhile, this blah building can at least up the density of the area.

Second crane came down this weekend. Not much more to see here I guess as the next few months will be focused on the interior.

They target 2020 to start move-ins. Four years ago it probably seemed like a good plan. Can’t help but wonder if all the development in the immediate area will dampen leasing pace. How does it impact a marketing focus on the shops and walking in the area when it feels like a never-ending construction project.

That will settle - it is pretty telling that we consider a building like this to be infill now. 10 years ago this project would have excited us.

It looks more finished from a distance than it actually is. The base lower levels are a mess of construction still so I can see why a mid-2020 finish out could be the plan. Leasing has slowed until Spring so if they were to open any time soon they would have a hard time getting very many leases.
